The Edict of Milan (313) is normally considered an act that granted the religion of Christians (christianis) and the religion of everybody (omnibus) freedom and toleration: «ut daremus et Christianis et omnibus liberam potestatem sequendi re- ligionem quam quisque voluisset». However, considering Christians, the Edictum Me- diolanense also affirmed a collective liberty, other than individual, recognizing an ius corporis eorum id est ecclesiarum, non hominum singulorum. This Article will analyse the immediate impact of those provisions (and the similar ones). Particularly, it will underline the public role of Catholic Church, taking into deep account its specific characteristics as opposed to other religiones, trade associations and cultural fraternity, which were in the many Roman cities.

Abstract

The Edict of Milan (313) is normally considered an act that granted the religion of Christians (christianis) and the religion of everybody (omnibus) freedom and toleration: «ut daremus et Christianis et omnibus liberam potestatem sequendi re- ligionem quam quisque voluisset». However, considering Christians, the Edictum Me- diolanense also affirmed a collective liberty, other than individual, recognizing an ius corporis eorum id est ecclesiarum, non hominum singulorum. This Article will analyse the immediate impact of those provisions (and the similar ones). Particularly, it will underline the public role of Catholic Church, taking into deep account its specific characteristics as opposed to other religiones, trade associations and cultural fraternity, which were in the many Roman cities.
