Statue of Roman Emperor
Licensed under PD

Statue of Roman Emperor Constantine at the south transept of York Minster. This is near the spot where Constantine was proclaimed Augustus (i.e., co-emperor) in 306 A.D. by his troops.

Following a six-year civil war, Constantine became sole emperor and allowed religious freedom throughout the empire. His Edict proved a turning point for the spread of the Christian Church.
