Chi Rho Christogram:

According to the ancient historian Eusebius of Caesarea (circa 300 AD), Emperor Constantine I, who was not Christian, had a vision while on the march with his army. The emperor and his entire army saw a cross above the sun with the inscription “By this sign you will conquer” in Greek. Later, Christ appeared to him in a dream and instructed Constantine to use this sign as a protection in battle. Constantine ordered a likeness of the vision to be used as his new military standard and went on to win his battles. This insignia is now known as the Chi- Rho.


Constantine went on to study Christian theology and called a stop to the ongoing persecutions. He also decriminalized Christian worship with the Edict of Milan which allowed Christianity to flourish safely for the first time.
