The Holy Emperor Theodosius the Great.

Commemorated January 17 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

This famous Emperor, a zealot for the Faith, ruled from 379 to 395. Constantine the Great forbade the persecution of Christians. Theodosius the Great went a stage further: he forbade sacrifice to idols in the area under his administration. He played a considerable part in the establishing and spread of the Christian faith in the world.
