What did Constantine's law require?


"Let all the judges and town people, and the occupation of all trades rest on the venerable day of the sun;
but let those who are situated in the country, freely and at full liberty, attend to the business of agriculture;
because it often happens that no other day is so fit for sowing corn and planting vines; lest the critical
moment being let slip, men should lose the commodities granted by Heaven."-Edict of March 7, AD. 321,
Corpus Juris Civilis Cod., lib. 3, tit. 12, 3.
NOTE - This edict, issued by Constantine, under whom the Christian church and the Roman state
were first united, in a manner supplied the lack of a divine command for Sunday observance, and may be
considered the original Sunday law, and the model after which all Sunday laws since then have been
patterned. It was one of the important steps in bringing about and establishing the change of the Sabbath.
