Gibbon Chapter XX

  • The first half of the chapter is an investigation into Constantine's conversion, one of Gibbon's few attempts to get under the skin of a complex psychological individual who made a crucial political decision, and on whom the historical sources are in sometimes vigorous conflict. The second half of the chapter is a description of the political set-up of the Christian church during and after Constantine's reign.
