By 313 AD, Constantine and his co-emperor Licinius issued the Edict of Milan, which specifically guaranteed religious freedom to Christians throughout the Roman Empire.
The Edict of Milan states that: "we should let both the Christians and all others follow whatever religion they wanted to, so that whatever God there is in heaven may be happy and pleased with us and with all our subjects." This is what Constantine's Christianity was all about.

He had had a vision which made him convert to Christianity.
As soon as he won the Battle of the Milvian Bridge, Constantine seems to have thought of himself as a Christian.
That same winter, Constantine was already writing letters to Christian bishops about church controversies and had bishops with him at court to advise him about Christian issues.
One of the first controversies that Constantine heard about was the Donatist controversy.
NBC has not ordered a full season for Constantine despite it's above average initial ratings and increasing quality and fanbase.
The show is doing well for it's circumstances: it has one of the worst time slots imaginable, 10 pm on Friday nights.
Matt Ryan is perfect as John Constantine, the show is getting better each week, and last episode saw a 38% bump in the ratings and an 87% viewer retention rating (after Grimm) with the introduction of The Spectre.
The show still has an option to pick up a second season, so as fans of John Constantine, Justice League Dark, and DC Comics in general we need to come together and make sure Constantine is NOT cancelled.
His advisors told him that God wanted Constantine to give a lot of money and land to the Church, and that God wanted the Church not to have to pay taxes, and Constantine did all those things. Find out more about Greek games in general, or about Hera and Zeus, or the history of swimming.
