Movie: "Constantine and the Cross" (1961)

Constantine and the Cross (AKA: Costantino il grande) is a 1961 Italian made historical drama film about the early career of the emperor Constantine, who first legalized and then adopted Christianity in the early fourth century. The fictionalized film (it is especially fictional when it focuses on his personal life) only stretches as far into his life as the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in AD 312.

In 303 AD, Constantine became the first emperor of Gaul. Before a battle with the Romans, he has a revelation, and assures his army of the freedom of worship for all Christians.

The movie is now streaming on Amazon Prime, if you are looking for a better quality.
