VILLAGESChurch of Saint Constantine
KONSTANTINI
The small, picturesque village of Konstantini takes its name from the Roman Emperor Constantine (306 - 337) who historians call "the Great". In the church he is known as "the Equal of the Apostles" because he renounced paganism and guaranteed religious tolerance for Christians.
     The main church in Konstantini is dedicated to him and, ironically, includes an inscription about pagan rituals performed by a cult honouring the goddess Demeter and her daughter Persephone. The inscription attracts scholars and tourists fascinated by a cult that was still being celebrated during Roman rule.
