The biggest political event in Christian history is the conversion of Constantine, the first emperor that not only expelled the Christians, but strongly supported the Church, turning it into a super-rich and powerful institution. The roots of empathy of Constantine to the new religion is unclear ….
In 312 AD, the battle with Maxentius (son of Maximian, whom Constantine killed or forced to commit suicide in May 311) in Moulvia bridge (now Ponte Molle) two kilometers outside Rome, saw the monogram ” CHR “with the inscription” In this you win “as Eusebius testifies, saying that the emperor told him himself .

To avoid unpleasant feelings caused the army, turned the symbol into a positive force ….The subsequent victory of Constantine justify his conversion to the Christian God, who became his patron. Because he was illiterate and superstitious, after winning believed firmly that it was under the favor and protection of the Christian God.Ending with the vision seen by Constantine, we mention the view of Jones, who expresses the possibility this was a rare but scientifically validated form of the halo phenomenon.This is analogous to the rainbow, like that typical and transient.It is being created when sunlight is incident not raindrops, but ice crystals. Usually the form parhelion or light rings surrounding the sun but scientifically observed in some cases the formation of a light having the cross in the center of the Sun ….
