The Emperor Constantine: Imp. Cæs. Flavius Constan. Aug.

I will shew to Christian Nobility its source in the life of the prime Gentleman of Christianity. If we respect Antiquity, Greatness, and Dignity, we shall not finde a Prince either more anciently noble than he, who first of all among Emperours deserved the title of Christian, or more truly great than he, who so happily engraffed [engraved, drew] the Empire of the Universe on the Tree of the Cross, or more justly honourable than he, who cemented his honour with the blood of the Lamb. (p. 234)
