Constantine the Great begins his conversion to Christianity on this episode of This Day In History!
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand are here to tell us about Constantine the Great's Vision of the Cross on this day in 312. A vision in the sky of a christian cross would lead Constantine and his army to victory the following day. This vision prior to the Battle of the Milvian Bridge does not lead Constantine to convert the Roman Empire to Christianity, he simply lightens up on the Christians and was certainly a huge reason Christianity would spread throughout the empire.
Also on this day, Philadelphia is established in the Colonial American Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1682, the first underground New York Subway line opens in 1904, and Reagan suspends construction of the new U.S. Embassy in Moscow due to soviet listening devices in the building structure.
