The Edict of Milan was the famous declaration of freedom of religion within the Roman Empire. The edict was a joint proclamation made by the Western emperor Constantine I and the Eastern emperor Licinius in February 313 AD. The edict established religious toleration for Christianity and freedom of worship for all Christians throughout the Roman Empire. In addition, both emperors ordered that confiscated property such as church property and Scriptures be returned to the Christians.

Lactantius is the primary source for the edict of Milan.
