able to get people to do it. It has a list of the books that were included there. Bishop who supervised this process saidthat they have 27 books, but he included others in case because some think it’s scriptures, others think it’s somethingelse, so I leave you guys to fgure out what you wanna do with it.The Edict of Milan (Lecture 6)Going from pagan empire to Christan empire.4thcentury, given by Constantne.
