Constantine

In the year A.D. 312, The Roman emperor Constantine engaged in one of the greatest battles of his life. Faced with rival army twice the size of his own, Constantine realized that he probably would die in battle the next day...

But Constantine had a dream that night, an angel appeared before him bearing the image of a cross, uttering the fateful words "By this symbol, you shall conquer". Immediately he ordered the shield of his troops adorned with the symbol of the cross.

History records that Constantine emerged triumphant the very next day, cementing his hold on Roman Empire. Constantine vowed to repay the blood debt to this relatively obscure religion, Christianity, which had been persecuted for centuries by previous Roman emperors.

Constantine signed laws that would eventually pave the way for Christianity to become an official religion of the greatest empires in the world... and rest is history, eventually Christianity became one of the prominent religions in the world...

Very interesting *dream* indeed... and sometimes dreams can determine a destiny of a generation...
