Saint Miltiades, Pope of Rome (10 April)

St. Miltiades was the 3nd Pope of Rome, beginning his papacy in 311 AD. His papacy coincided with the end of the persecution in the Roman Empire of Christians following Emperor Galerius’ ending of the Diocletian Persecution of Christians through the Edict of Toleration.

He was an advocate for peace and unity in the Church. The Emperor Constantine issued the Edict of Milan in 313 AD during Miltiades’ papacy. He died in 314 and is commemorated on April 10th in the Orthodox Church for his service to the Church and his defense of the faith. In the Roman Catholic church, he is commemorated on January 10.
