Constantine the Great, Early 307 - 22 May 337 A.D.
Click for a larger photo In February 313, Constantine met with Licinius in Milan, where they developed the Edict of Milan.

The edict protected from religious persecution not only Christians but all religions, allowing anyone to worship whichever deity they chose. A similar edict had been issued in 311 by Galerius, then senior emperor of the Tetrarchy; Galerius' edict granted Christians the right to practice their religion but did not restore any property to them. The Edict of Milan included several clauses which stated that all confiscated churches would be returned as well as other provisions for previously persecuted Christians.
