DISCUSSION QUESTION: When Constantine became Emperor, he issued the Edict of Milan in 313 C.E., which ended the Diocletian persecutions and guaranteed freedom of religion to all Romans, whether they chose to worship the Christian god or the Roman gods. When Theodosius I became Emperor some years later, he also issued a proclamation (The Theodosian Code) addressing the practice of religion in the empire. Please read the attached page, which consists of excerpts from both the Edict of Milan and the Theodosian Code.
After reading this, please once again address the question of how Christianity changed as it went from being persecuted and marginalized under Diocletian to becoming the official state religion of the Roman Empire.Does the reading change or enrich your thinking in any way?
