Omtale: Constantine
Drawing on recent scholarly advances and new evidence, Timothy Barnes offers a fresh and exciting study of Constantine and his life. * First study of Constantine to make use of Kevin Wilkinson's re-dating of the poet Palladas to the reign of Constantine, disproving the predominant scholarly belief that Constantine remained tolerant in matters of religion to the end of his reign * Clearly sets out the problems associated with depictions of Constantine and answers them with great clarity * Includes Barnes' own research into the marriage of Constantine's parents, Constantine's status as a crown prince and his father's legitimate heir, and his dynastic plans * Honorable Mention for 2011 Classics & Ancient History PROSE award granted by the Association of American Publishers
