Ron and others have offered some helpful response to the Constantinian Fall fallacy, or at least superficial expressions of it. For some healthy push-back on the impact of Eusebius' imperializing doctrine of sovereignty, I recommend the more nuanced rendition in a book titled Church, Gospel and Empire. heres a decent review:

One fallacy regarding Constantine is that he made Christianity the official religion of Rome, when in fact he only legitimized it. Theodosious was the one who made Christianity the official religion of the empire in 380.
