The Life of Constantine with Orations of Constantine and Eusebius.: Chapter IV
Chapter IV.—That God honored Constantine.

Accordingly, by the manifold blessings he has conferred on him, he has distinguished him alone of all the sovereigns of whom we have ever heard as at once a mighty luminary and most clear-voiced herald of genuine piety.
