6. Hagia in Connection with Gospel of Holy Twelve which has teachings similar to Gnostic teaching basically and also in connection with Church built named Hagia Sophia.
Hagia Sophia -Hagia means Holy Wisdom

Gospel of Holy Twelve
But the comforter, who is my Mother, Holy Wisdom whom, the Father will send in my name, she shall teach you all things and bring all things to remembrance whatsoever I have said unto you.

Theirs a monument made for Constantine after the battle it has three pagan gods and pagan Apollo God and this is after the battle was won.
No crosses or signs of Christianity , their was a gathering held by him years later and then he shares his so called dream and vision, most likely a lie obviously considering on the monument it would not be the way it is now.
And they rewritten the events of the history of the events recorded about the victory and added the vision and dream.
Thought I add that if you believe him.
You should get to know history before you decide what truth is.
Five times in the Gospel of Philip which is known as a Gnostic book, it mentions the words Christian
They were saying they were the true Christians when being killed.
Gospel of Philip
43The Name “Christian”
If you say, “I am a Jew,” no one will be moved. If you say, “I am a Roman,” no one will be disturbed. If you say, “I am a Greek, barbarian, slave, free,” no one will be troubled. If you say, “I am a Christian,” the [world] will be shaken. May I [receive the one] whose name the [world] cannot bear to hear.
52Going Down into the Water
Anyone who goes down into the water and comes up without receiving anything and says, “I am a Christian,” has borrowed the name. But one who receives the holy spirit has the name as a gift. A gift does not have to be paid back, but what is borrowed must be paid. This is how it is with us, when one of us experiences a mystery.
Those who receive the name of the father, son, and holy spirit and have accepted them must do this. If someone does not accept them, the name will also be taken from that person. A person receives them in the chrism with the oil of the power of the cross. The apostles called this power the right and the left. This person is no longer a Christian but is Christ.
84Chrism Is Superior to Baptism
Chrism is superior to baptism. We are called Christians from the word “chrism,” not from the word “baptism.” Christ also has his name from chrism, for the father anointed the son, the son anointed the apostles, and the apostles anointed us. Whoever is anointed has everything: resurrection, light, cross, holy spirit. The father gave all this to the person in the bridal chamber, and the person accepted it. The father was in the son and the son was in the father. This is heaven’s kingdom.
No Jews…from Greeks…from Jews…to Christians. [There was another generation of people], and these [blessed people] were called the chosen spiritual ones,  true humankind, the child of humankind, and the offspring of the child of humankind. This true generation is renowned in the world, and this is where the attendants of the bridal chamber are.
