Lost to the West: The Forgotten Byzantine Empire That Rescued Western Civilization by Lars Brownworth p. 28

"It's one of those quirks of history that the last pagan emperor was a member of the empire's first Christian dynasty. Perhaps not surprisingly, Constantine had put very little thought into who would follow him on the throne."
