Charles Freeman (Pimlico)

An account of the promulgation of a decree, in AD 381, by emperor Theodosius, which required his subjects to subscribe to a belief in the Trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Freeman provides a reassessment of the subsequent claims that the decree was based on a previous consensus reached by the Christian Church at the Council of Constantinople.
