The Life Of The Blessed Emperor Constantine -Eusebius Pamphilus

“AND now, since it appears by the clearest and most convincing evidence, that the miseries which erewhile oppressed the entire human race are now banished from every part of the world, partly by the power of Almighty God, and partly by means of the counsel and aid which He is pleased on many occasions to administer through our agency; it remains for all, both individually and unitedly, to observe and seriously consider how great this power and how efficacious this grace are, which have annihilated and utterly destroyed this generation (as I may call them) of most wicked and evil men; have restored joy to the good, and diffused it over all countries; and now guarantee the fullest liberty both to honour the Divine law as it should be honoured, with all reverence, and to pay due observance to those who have dedicated themselves to the service of that law, and who will now lift up their heads as it were after a period of profound darkness, and, with an enlightened knowledge of the present course of events, will henceforward render to its precepts that becoming reverence and honour which are consistent with their pious character.

“Let this ordinance be published in our Eastern provinces.”
