Constantinople was a city that Constantine the Great founded, naming it after himself. Constantine had called Nicaea I in an attempt to settle the discussions of Christ's divinity. Nicaea declared... More > the Nicene Creed and several canons that defined Christian doctrine and administration of the church. That didn't settle the discussions, though. Arius made friends with the imperial family.

To save Byzantium, the senate asked a Roman General, Leo III, to become Emperor. Leo and his brilliant son Constantine V radically altered the Byzantine imperial system militarily and culturally.

This religious struggle culminated in a final battle to define Byzantine Christianity and the control of the Empire. This novel recounts who won, why and how.< Less
