The author uses secular and ecclesiastic written sources to study the social, religious and political situation in the Roman Empire during the reign of the first Christian Emperor Constantine I the Great. That was the time when the Christian Church had finally institutionalized, had legalized itself at the clerical level and had gained weight, influence and rather significant spiritual power in the Late Greek-Roman society. The author reviews Constantine the Great's efforts to reform the church and religion, whereas he aimed to lay legal foundations enabling establishment of Caesaropapism Institute on the territory of the Empire and to subordinate the ecclesiastic power to the secular one.

Keywords: Christian Church, Constantine the Great, the Arians, the Council of Nicaea
