"Constantine : Religious Faith and Imperial Policy brings together some of the English-speaking world's leading Constantinian scholars for an interdisciplinary study of the life and legacy of the first Christian emperor. For many he remains a 'sign of contradiction' (Luke 2:34) whose life and legacy generate intense debate. He was the first Christian emperor, protector of the Church, eventually remembered as 'equal to the apostles' for bringing about the Christianization of the Empire. Yet there is another side to Constantine's legacy, one that was often neglected by his Christian hagiographers. Some modern scholars have questioned the orthodoxy of the so-called 'model Christian emperor,' while others have doubted the sincerity of his Christian commitment, viewing his embrace of the faith merely a means to a political end. Collecting papers presented at the 2013 symposium at Stockton University commemorating the 1700th anniversary of the Edict of Milan, this volume examines the very questions that have for so long occupied historians, classicists, and theologians. The papers in this volume prove once again that Constantine is not so much a figure from the remote past, but an individual whose legacy continues to shape our present"--Provided by publisher.

The emperor and the army in the later Roman empire, AD 235-395
Hebblewhite, Mark, 1976- author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
Selected Roman emperors and usurpers -- Introduction: Fides, the army and the emperor; The ancient sources; Modern perspectives -- Dawn of the warrior emperor -- Advertising military success -- Praemia militiae -- The emperor, the law and disciplina militaris -- Rituals of identity -- Symbols of power.

"With The Emperor and the Army in the Later Roman Empire, AD 235-395 Mark Hebblewhite offers the first study solely dedicated to examining the nature of the relationship between the emperor and his army in the politically and militarily volatile later Roman Empire. Bringing together a wide range of available literary, epigraphic and numismatic evidence he demonstrates that emperors of the period considered the army to be the key institution they had to mollify in order to retain power and consequently employed a range of strategies to keep the troops loyal to their cause. Key to these efforts were imperial attempts to project the emperor as a worthy general (imperator)and a generous provider of military pay and benefits. Also important were the honorific and symbolic gestures each emperor made to the army in order to convince them that they and the empire could only prosper under his rule"--Provided by publisher.
