The Roman Emperor Constantine who was responsible for making Christianity the official religion of the previously pagan Roman Empire has strangely enough been rarely the subject of movies set in Roman times. While this early 1960's Italian produced epic does play around heavily with historical fact, in particular with the details of Constantine's personal life and character, it does however make an earnest attempt to retell many of the significant historical moments in the period of Constantine's battle to become sole emperor of the crumbling Roman Empire in the 4th century A.D.
