Roman emperors Gratian, Valentinian II, and Theodosius I decree that all Eunomian, Macedonian, Arian, and Apollinarian priests must be expelled from the city of Constantinople.

This new imperial decree states:

"The Eunomians, the Macedonians, the Arians, and the Apollinarians are infamous for their false doctrines. All who participate in such madness or who assert that they are priests of such heresies, describing themselves as ministers of a criminal religion, must be driven from this City without any intervention or favoritism. They must henceforth live in other places and be separated from the congregations of the good." [CTh 16.5.13]
