520 8  'Religions of the Constantinian Empire' provides a 
       synoptic review of Constantine's relation to all the 
       cultic and theological traditions of the Empire during the
       period from his seizure of power in the west in 306 to the
       end of his reign as autocrat of both east and west in 337.
520    'Religions of the Constantinian empire' provides a 
       synoptic review of Constantine's relation to all the 
       cultic and theological traditions of the Empire during the
       period from his seizure of power in the west in 306 CE to 
       the end of his reign as autocrat of both east and west in 
       337 CE. Divided into three parts, the first considers the 
       efforts of Christians to construct their own philosophy, 
       and their own patterns of the philosophic life, in 
       opposition to Platonism. The second assembles evidence of 
       survival, variation or decay in religious practices which 
       were never compulsory under Roman law. The 'religious 
       plurality' of the second section includes those cults 
       which are represented as demonic burlesques of the 
       sacraments by Firmicus Maternus. The third reviews the 
       changes, both within the church and in the public sphere, 
       which were undeniably prompted by the accession of a 
       Christian monarch. In this section on 'Christian 
       polyphony', Mark Edwards expertly moves on from this 
       deliberate petrifaction of Judaism to the profound shift 
       in relations between the church and the civic cult that 
       followed the Emperor's choice of a new divine protector.
