  • 4 - Constantine - Part 2 (16.1 Meg MP3 17:33)

However, his megalomania undid most of his work unifying the church and threatened the very stability of the state. Does such a man truly deserve to be called great? Join Lars Brownworth as he looks at the apogee of Constantine's career and his impact on history.
