he invites all his subjećts to renounce their old superstitions, and embrace the
true faith, which God had manifested in so signal a manner, by visibly punishing
the persecutors of Christianity, and exalting the Prince who declared himself its
protećtor. However, he leaves them liberty of conscience, and forbids all
compulsion; though he wishes ardently that all may embrace the true religion. “
