Constantine the Pious


Wednesday, October 30, 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

In his lecture Professor Leithart will survey Eusebius's account of Constantine's Christian convictions and examine later legends of Constantine to focus on the changing notions of how successive emperors wished to portray their faith in an imperial context.

He has authored several highly acclaimed books, including Defending Constantine, Deep Exegesis, Athanasius, Against Christianity, A Son to Me, A House for My Name, Blessed are the Hungry, Wise Words, Brightest Heaven of Invention, Heroes of the City of Man, and many more.
