Under Constantine’s rule he enacted many reforms to strengthen the empire. He played an influential role in the Edict of Milan (313 AD) which decriminalized Christianity, he called the First Council of Nicaea in 325 AD by which Christians professed the Nicene creed, he renamed the city Constantinople after himself, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the site of Jesus’ tomb was built under his orders and became one of the holiest places for Christianity. His feast day is celebrated on September 3rd.

    This is an exquisitely crafted and finely detailed historical coin pendant. Even looked at it under a 30X jewelers loop and the finished work is flawless. Shipment and delivery (USPS) was also extremely fast. Ordered the pendant on Monday and it arrived on Thursday. This was my first order with Gallery Byzantium and I am truly impressed with the quality of their work. Highest recommendation. Will certainly be back to order from them again.
