This 275-slide presentation systematically discusses the three major subjects of the fourth century: Constantine, The Council of Nicaea and the development of the Christian Canon. Beginning with how churches responded to persecution from the Roman Empire, we show how Constantine influenced the history of Christianity as well as what happened at the Council of Nicaea and why it matters. Finally, we discuss what councils facilitated the canonization of Scripture and how the church recognized which books were inspired.
