Mark Horton gets it wrong in "Coast"

If you were watching "Coast" on BBC2 today you will have heard one of the presenters, Mark Horton, telling us that the Emperor Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire in 314. No, Mark, he didn't.

Constantine favoured Christianity and made it legitimate (together with all the other religions in the Empire). He played an important role in shaping how Christianity developed at this time. But it was not until the reign of Theodosius I (379-395) that Christianity became the official religion of Rome.
