In the fourth century Anno Domini, Christianity flourished. The Edict of Milan, established under Roman Emperor Constantine I in 313, guaranteed protection and returned previously confiscated property to the Christian Church. For the first time in history, the liturgy, worship of biblical texts through mass or Divine Service, could be practiced publicly. Jerome, utilizing the Hebrew and Greek versions of the Old Testament and the Greek New Testament, translated the Bible into Latin. This Vulgate Bible standardized religious texts, further uniting the Christian Church and allowing the word of God to spread. However, the majority of Romans could not afford to own a Bible, nor could they find hours everyday for Devotional Readings. Church leaders sought to guide the masses through inspirational stories of people who lived virtuous lives. Using this technique, Gregory of Nyssa, Athanasius, and Gregory the Great inspired readers while elucidating Christian ideals of asceticism, humbleness, and commitment.
