The Da Vinci Code and Caesar Constantine: Rome in October 312

Date recorded: 21 May 2017 | Speaker: Jürgen Spieß
Topic: History

Description

In his thriller The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown makes two assertions about Caesar Constantine. First, Constantine defined the profile and scope of the New Testament as we know it today at the council of Nicea. Second, his “conversion” was only part of his power politics, and he was not really a Christian. How should we evaluate these claims?
