May 2013
Bible Study Magazine;May/Jun2013, Vol. 5 Issue 4, p43
The article focuses on the assertions that the New Testament canon was determined by the Roman Emperor Constantine. It says that the two events in the conspirational thriller novel "Da Vinci Code," by Dan Brown was contemplated to put the idea that Constantine had decided at the Council of Nicea in which books are belonged to the New Testament. It states that this preposterous idea was supported by the notion from the ancient book "Life of Constantine," by Eusebius of Caesarea.
