Today In 361: Constantius II Died

Constantius II was Arian or semi-Arian, a form of Christianity later declared to be heretical. He severely restricted pagan practices, banning sacrifices and closing temples, and imposed numerous restrictions on Jews, such as forbidding conversion and inter-marriage with Christians. As with other early Christian emperors, he was not baptised until he was on his deathbed.
