This article seeks to show how imperial legislation promoting religious conformity, whether by preventing or imposing religious beliefs or practices, developed from the time of the Decian persecution down to the comprehensive anti‐pagan enactments of Justinian. The main focus is on the relationship of Christians with pagans and Jews. In particular, attention is paid to the rapid changes of imperial perspective during the period of the Great Persecution, its relaxation, and Constantineʹs adoption of Christianity.
