         "The persecution, then was political, and it turned on a definite issue; Was the faith of a man due to his religion or to his government? If we hold that a man must obey the command of the secular magistrate, even if it violate the moral law of his religion, then we are siding with Galerius & Diocletian. If we hold that the authority of the moral law is greater than that of the magistrate, then we are siding with the Christians. Constantine only suspended the question."   "Constantine the Great" by G.P. Baker 1931
