Happy Anniversary

This blog just can't seem to escape Constantine.

Christians in York have just celebrated the 1700th anniversary of Constantine's accession (25 July, 306), though the details seem confused. He was not made Augustus, but rather Caesar, and he at one time served with as many as five other emperors divided between the eastern and western empires. It took eighteen years before he ruled as sole emperor.
