Towards the jubilee of one of the most important events in the history of civilization – 1700 years since the publishing of the Edict of Milan of Holy Emperor Constantine the Great - editorial staff of the Information Service of the Serbian Orthodox Church launched at the end of 2012 a new section on the official website of our Holy Church entitled Constantine’s Jubilee.
In forthcoming days, one of the aims of this column is to represent all significant events which have happened on the eve of this important anniversary in dioceses of the Serbian Orthodox Church in both Homeland and abroad.
As you can already see in this column Constantine’s jubilee, a series of conferences and scientific meetings have been held, many books and multimedia projects have been published, and many concerts and exhibitions already took place with the aim to bring closer to the public the personality of Constantine the Great.
Naturally, the Diocese of Niš with its seat in the birthplace of Emperor Constantine carries most of the activities with many accompanying projects.
Considering the significance and the impact of the Edict of Milan on the all-encompassing church, state and social life since the age of Constantine until our time, the Serbian Orthodox Church and the Republic of Serbia, through the Organizing committee presided by His Holiness Irinej, Serbian Patriarch, and Mr. Tomislav Nikolić, the President of the Republic of Serbia, participate in the celebration of 1700th anniversary on the highest level.
