Although Christianity was already the official religion in several countries by the fourth century, Christians continued to be persecuted in the Roman Empire.

In 313 CE, the Edict of Milan was issued by Emperor Constantine the Great in the West and Licinius Augustus in the East, granting religious freedom throughout the entire Roman Empire, as well as restitution of property confiscated from Christians.
