Presenting a new image with a quote from the proto-Church historian, Eusebius Pamphilus, bishop of Caesarea, about the miraculous vision of Constantine. Eusebius wrote this account approximately a year after the death of Constantine in AD 337, so it is likely that many people who witnessed the miracle (which would have taken place AD 312) were still alive at the time.
The statue featured in this image is located at York in the UK. Constantine was the only legitimate Roman emperor crowed in the British Isles.
The full Life of the Blessed Emperor Constantine was recently put back into print by Evolution Publishing and is a good read.
