This review paper focuses on Rolf Bergmaier’s book, which represents yet another contribution to the debate on the so-called Constantinian shift, a controversy which has engaged successive generations of historians of early Christianity and late Roman Empire for over 150 years. Thus far, the available sources (texts and artefacts, including inscriptions, engraved gems and coins) enable historians to develop divergent visions of the Constantinian era, depending on sympathies and religious persuasion.
