Constantine the Great was the first Christian emperor of the Roman Empire. His mother, Helena, was a great example for him. She endured exile by her husband but remained close to her son. Constantine brought freedom of religion to the empire and eventually was baptized. He was a great warrior and tried diligently to please his mother. The convening of the bishops at Nicaea, the new creed, and the enforcement of orthodox religion resulted in many of the Christian documents used in Northern African to be buried. The discovery of these documents has allowed many to become aware of the great differences that existed within the church during the fourth century. Years after Constantine’s death the Christian Religion became the only religion of the empire and a new set of problem surfaced.
