What Did Constantine Know & When Did He See It?
by Peter J. Leithart

In the public reception area of the Vatican palace are four Stanze di Raffaello, each of which is decorated with paintings from the school of the Renaissance master Raphael. The largest is the Sala di Constantino, the hall of Constantine, and its frescoes depict episodes from the life and legends of Constantine—the Battle of the Milvian Bridge, the Donation of the Vatican Hill to Pope Sylvester (who looks suspiciously like Raphael’s patron Pope Julius II), and the Vision of the Cross.
