Deemed most creditable for the doctrinal and ideological foundation of Christianity, Constantine the Great was sanctified and considered an almost apostolic figure. It is believed that Constantine decided to take Christian faith after seeing the Christ monogram in a dream and a vision just before the Battle of the Milvian bridge. By God’s grace he was told that if he accepted the sign of Christianity and marked the shields of his soldiers with it, he would be victorious. If at that period of time pagan beliefs prevailed in him, then we can observe how he gradually accepted Christian faith in the years to come. Constantine became a pragmatic and a rational believer who was formally baptized at the end of his life.
