Trier - International State Exhibition "Constantine the Great"
Constantine the Great ruled as Roman emperor for more than 31 years from 306 to 337 - longer than any other apart from the first emperor, Augustus. In the 4th century, Constantine succeeded in reuniting the Empire after a period of major crisis. Enabling the classical age to enjoy its final heyday, he personally introduced a critical change that continues to shape Europe today: Constantine was the first emperor to actively promote the Christian church, adopting the Christian faith shortly before his death.
The exhibition is dedicated to this great ruler in Trier, where he took up his first consulate post as emperor in 307.
