Arch of Constantine (Rome, Italy)

The Arch of Constantine is a triumphal arch.  It marks one of the great turning points in history - the military coup that made Christianity mainstream.      
Emperor Constantine defeated rival Maxentius in the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in AD 312.  The night before the battle, Constantine saw a cross in the sky.  When he became sole emperor, he legalized Christianity.
