How Christianity
Spread Throughout
The Roman Empire

From Wikipedia

The Christian religion, which emerged in the 1st century, had become a target of persecution in the Roman Empire during Christianity's early history, mostly in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. Emperors Galerius and Constantine permanently ended the general persecution in the early 4th century with the Edict of Milan. As a result of the Donatist controversy Constantine convened councils of Christian bishops to define an orthodox, or correct, Christian faith, expanding on earlier Christian councils. Numerous councils were held during the 4th and 5th centuries leading to rifts and schisms including the Arian schism, the Nestorian schism, and the Miaphysite schism. Throughout this process emperors became increasingly involved in the church, funding construction of church buildings, presiding over church councils, and even becoming involved in the appointment of bishops, notably during the Byzantine Papacy. In 380, Emperor Theodosius issued the Edict of Thessalonica, which formally established the Christian doctrine established at the First Council of Nicaea as the Empire's sole recognized religion. The church hierarchy in the Empire would continue to evolve throughout its history. In the 6th century Emperor Justinian established the bishops of Rome, Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem as the leadership of the Imperial church, referred to as the Pentarchy.
