The Sheffield Classical Association and The Migration of Faith: Clerical Exile in Late Antiquity Project at the University of Sheffield would like to invite you to the film screening of "Constantine and the Cross", our third instalment in the series of films aiming to bring the image of the Roman and early Christian world alive. We wanted to thank everyone that attended our last screening and hope that we can interest you in continuing to attend our film series.
Immerse yourself in the story of a man who has been described as an "erratic block diverting the stream of human history". Follow the young and energetic Constantine as he matures by the side of his father in Britain, progressing in a traditional Roman military career. Little does he know however, that his hunger for power, glory and conquest will lead him to discover and embrace a faith which was destined to shape the history of Rome, and indeed the whole world. A saint? A tyrant? Why not come along and discover who Constantine was and discuss the implications of one of the most influential conversions in the history of humanity.
The film will be followed by a Question and Answer session with Professor Kate Cooper (University of Manchester).
The film is a part of a wider project and there will be one further film screening this academic year. It remains free and everyone is most welcome to attend.
25th April 2017 - Agora (2009)
Please note that this event will take place in a different venue than the previous film screening: The Diamond, Lecture Theatre 2, University of Sheffield.
