      Constantine the Great is known in history as the first Roman Emperor to convert to Christianity. However, legends and archaeological evidence suggest a different story– it seems that Constantine had a secret about his faith which was hidden for centuries. Constantine built many churches. He celebrated faith in one (Christian) God and his son Author: Natalia Klimczak. David L. Dungan, Constantine’s Bible: Politics and the Making of the New ss Press, Reviewed by Robert M. Price. One of the many things Dan Brown got wrong in the supposedly historical background of his novel The Da Vinci Code was that the emperor Constantine chose, more or less ham-handedly, a set of books henceforth to count as Christian scripture.

    Chapter 1. Preface.— Of the Death of Constantine.
