Pope Miltiades (Greek: Μιλτιάδης, Miltiádēs)[1][2][3], also known as Melchiades the African[1], was the bishop of Rome from 311 to his death on 10 or 11 January 314[1][4][5]. He was given the right to receive back all ecclesiastical buildings and possessions which had been confiscated by the Roman authorities[2]. His papacy marked the end of the persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire[5].
