  • Three centuries after the birth of Christ the Roman Emperor across Europe from Britain to the Middle East... So vast was the Empire that its rulership was divided—The East was ruled by Emperor Diocletian—the West by Maximums... Next in command to the emperors were those who held the title of Caesar... The Caesar of the West was Constantius Chlorus. His seat of Government was Treviri, located in what is now Southern Germany... From this Outpost he waged relentless warfare against the barbarian hordes which threatened the northern frontier of the Empire... Chief among his Generals was his son. CONSTANTINE--
  • With the victory of Constantine the persecutions of Christians were ended—religious freedom for the first time came to the Empire—the Divine Message of Love and Hope and Redemption went out joyously to all mankind.
