Saving Constantine in The City

March 11th, 2011

By Matthew Lee Anderson

Well, not quite.  But pretty close.

Andrew Walker has a review of Leithart’s phenomenal treatment of Constantine’s life in the latest edition of The City, a journal to which you all should subscribe.  Not only is it free, it’s awesome.  And free and awesome rarely meet these days.

The latest edition looks to be something of a home run.  And Andrew’s review definitely is.  Tolle lege, as those who welcomed Constantine’s ending of the sacrifices might have said.
