After more than a century of steady Roman decline, one man restores order to the disintegrating empire, setting it on a new course with Christianity at its heart. Host Bettany Hughes examines the life of Constantine the Great—the last emperor to rule over a united empire—and the day he was baptized in May 337 A.D.
