      The hand of Constantine, for good and ill, has molded the Faith.

      I do not understand. I am the moderator of this group, and I do not know what yoy are talking about. I should be the one deciding what is or is not in the pool, unless you are talking about a different group. Can you clue me in on what we are talking about here???

      How does this image relate to the theme of The Democratic Image?

    8. fotofacade 101 months ago | reply

      Hi Dr John - this image to me relates because of the symbolism of Constantine (a Roman Emperor) from Rome - home of democracy. I like to compare this fact with the autocratic nature of the image. Strong didactic hand

      Andy - I promise I am not arguing; I really want your thoughts.

      I have always thought of Athens as the home of democracy, and I have never thought of the "Pax Romana" as democratic. I have also always thought of Constantine as very autocratic - he basically called and ramroded the Council oof Nicea, for example. Please share your thoughts.

      Hi John - sorry I just have a basic background to Constantine - don't really know too much about the guy to be honest :-)

      Hello Fotofacade,
      I just joined the group as an outsider - being interested in architecture
      As I have a hand in your picture (see my name below) I will agree with your suggesting that Constantine of Rome was a symbol of Democracy: hear! hear!
      Constantine ROMAN
