> 	Initially, one might claim that Elene is a story about conversion.  
> 	Judas converts, Constantine converts, and, implicitly, the whole 
> 	Roman Empire converts.  Certainly the story was intended to represent 
> 	historical reality.  But Elene went beyond a mere record of historical
> 	events; it was also a teaching tool.  Criticism of Elene has 
> 	traditionally, and rightly, turned to Patristics to understand the 
> 	lesson of conversion for a long-Christianized audience.  However, 
> 	as I will argue, Elene also carried lessons of the subversion of 
> |	containment  of others and the value of cultural homogeneity.  Arguments
> 4"	for the universal church masked arguments for a universal culture.  We 
> |	can best trace the cultural lesson of Elene through the queen's 	
> 	interactions with cultural others.  With comparison to the Marvels 
> 	of the East and other fantastic voyage literature of the time, we can 
> 	see that the object of the journey broadens from its initial purpose 
> 	of recovering a physical artifact.  Elene ceases to simply use the others 
> 	present, or record their presence as a curiosity or threat, and begins to 
> 	see them as objects with masterable wills.  Similar to a Hegelian 
> 	teleological view of history, Elene's teleological view of history 
> 	concludes that earlier cultures are ipso facto inferior cultures.  A 
> 	teleology of history inevitably brings a teleology of culture.
