In a Constant[ine] State of Confusion

Constantine was politically Christian in a sense that his goals were political and social. He ultimately wanted unity throughout the empire.  He was not too keen on the debate ensuing between Arius and Alexander; he did not really think it necessary or important. But because Constantine wanted unity so bad, he was willing to seek a compromise on theology by calling the Council of Nicaea. He was also driven by his fear that God would disapprove of the religious division occurring in the empire. Out of the Council of Nicaea come the Christian creed which went directly against what Arius believed.
