Western thought still remains in the foreground of human progress in the battle against
obstructionism and cultural regression.

Link to SEVEN GATES TO FREEDOM: A book and art, which expand on Christian thought and dismiss hackneyed and narrow interpretations. Freedom of religion -- bulwark of Western Civilization, initiated by Constantine the Great -- needs always be nourished to avert spiritual inertia.

Awareness & Consciousness

    Book published by NEW BYZANTIUM

Religious Freedom provided by Constantine the Great enabled him
to establish Christianity in the Empire.

The Edict of Milan in 313 A.D. allowed tolerance and freedom of religion throughout.
Reliable history book sources attest to this fact.  Although far more a soldier than a
book devotee, Constantine as history reports displayed considerable academic aptitude
to deal with issues in the letters and in art.  The book  Seven Gates to Freedom and its
accompanying art—like with other  contemporary religious art and publications and
those of Western history since Constantine's time—all owe their presence to tolerance
and freedom of religion he set forth.


Do not read this book unless prepared to engage in a good deal of creative and
discretionary thinking.  The content and the format are not designed for
entertainment.  It is a book that will challenge the reader every step of the way.
Narrow and myopic religious convictions and otherwise atheism are all dismissed.

Expansion of Western Civilization: from Constantine the Great to Constantinople and Byzantium and onward to America

 We are sincerely pleased you have come to visit our Site and we extend to you our warmest greeting in the highest tradition of BYZANTIUM.  Our Principal goal is to impart to you heretofore intentionally little known facts about BYZANTIUM as the foundation of Western Civilization.  We will avoid knowingly withholding the truth as an aim to social disorientation.  Practice of historical deception must cease.  We hope that you will enjoy our contribution to the fullest.  Welcome.
Constantine the Great began his eventful climb in York, England and reached the apex of his achievement in Constantinople, the City that he founded and named after himself (Constantine+Polis [city] =Constantinople).  By means of these pages, our readers travel through time, touching upon the early periods, including that of Constantine, of historical Constantinople, and of Hagia Sophia—the nexus of the Christian world—to arrive at places and events of our present day.  Our readers reach the outermost limit to which both Eastern and Western Christian groups expanded, bringing forth the flower of Western Civilization.  That limit is the Western Hemisphere as a whole, and in particular the coast of California near San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge where the two groups converged  as they approached from the North and from the South.
