January: Gerald Donnelly leads a discussion on Constantine the Great, the first Roman Emperor to profess Christianity. He became known as the “13th Apostle." This class will explore his life, accomplishments, and legacy. For example, in 313 CE, he issued the Edict of Milan, an agreement to treat Christians benevolently within the Roman Empire. He also convened the Council of Nicaea, a meeting that allowed the great minds of the church to iron out their theological differences and come up with a unified Christian creed, the Nicene Creed. Constantinople, now called Istanbul, was founded by Constantine in 324 CE and became a second Rome for Eastern Christianity.
