Constantine and Council of Nicaea

Lactantius and Eusebius gave accounts of how Constantine converted to Christianity. Lactantius’ account involved Constantine having a dream where he was instructed to put the sign of Christ (chi rho) on his soldiers’ armor. Constantine did what he was instructed to do in this dream and his army won, therefore he converted to Christianity. Eusebius’ account involved Constantine seeking divine help to defeat his enemy in battle because he knew he could not defeat them naturally. He sought after his father’s god and god gave him a heavenly sign (a trophy of a cross of light in the heavens), therefore he converted to Christianity.
