************* M*W: The Roman Emperor Constantine believed christianity would provide a means to greater political and military power. He apparently saw an omen in the sky that he read as "In this sign thou shalt conquer." First of all, this was written in Old English. Constantine took it as an omen that he would conquer the West. History tells us that he was successful in conquering the West, but logic tells us that it produced a magical, if not vague, picture of tri-uniqueness.
