Constantine was determined to restore peace in the Church and sincerely concerned himself with the re-establishment of religious peace. The emporer did not any side of the conflict and persuaded to reach a compromise at any expense. He did not try to influence formulating the Profession of Faith (the creed) as he was not acquainted with teological matters, however, he did contribute to accepting the formula by the participating bishops. According to Eusebius, Constantine was successful in achieving his aims. Constantine aimed for Christian unity as he found it as basic requirement for a powerful empire. The power was to be given by God - how could he then belive that the quarreling Christians or offending heretics would enjoy the grace of God ?
