313 AD is generally considered as a "turning point" in religious and political Western history. The meeting of Constantine and Licinius in Milan and the subsequent "edict" not only recognised to the Christians the right to assemble and practice their cults, but opened the way to the Christianisation of Roman imperial structures and, finally, to the declaration of Christianity as the only allowed religion in the Roman Empire.
The papers summoned in this volume tackle this complex historical phase from a number of perspectives (from Church history and theology to political and juridical history), following a strongly multidisciplinary approach. The chronological schope, stretching from the decades preceding the meeting of 313 to the reign of Julian the Apostate, permits to highlight both the cultural, political and juridical premises of Constantine and Licinius' decisions and the way they affected a number of aspects of everyday life within the Empire's borders, until Julian's pagan "restoration" and beyond it.

Viola Gheller: PhD at the University of Trento. Her research mainly focuses on the ties between religious belonging and socio-political phenomena, with a particular interest in the processes leading to the creation of collective identities. She is now collaborating with the chair of Roman History at the University of Urbino.
Davide Dainese: PhD at Padua University, Assistant Professor at the University of Bologna and member of the Bologna Foundation for Religious Sciences John XXIII. His research covers many aspects throughout the history of Christianity (history of church councils, history of the relationships between Church and State), but his main scientific interests are related to Late Antiquity (Alexandrian Tradition and the myth of Constantine the Great).
