Default Re: What is the Edict of Milan?

Dear Brian,

The Edit of Milan was a proclamation, initiated by Constantine in the West, but agreed to by Licinius in the East, by which Christianity was given legal status, equal to paganism if not a little superior to it. Persecution in any form from 313 was supposed to come to a stop.

For more on this, see the following:

and in the Catholic Encyclopedia:

Constantine the Great

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
