Emperor Constantius II closed all pagan temples, continuing the policies of his predecessor and father, emperor Constantine the Great. If anything, Constantius II works harder to promote Christianity at the expense of other religions than did his father Constantine the Great. He is not, however, a fanatic in his anti-pagan policies - pagan believers are not personally persecuted.
