Holy See / Papa Miltiades (Pope Miltiades)

Holy See - Papa Miltiades (Pope Miltiades) (2 July 311 - 10 January 314)

Pope Miltiades, or Melchiades (Greek: Ο Άγιος Μιλτιάδης ; Μελχιάδης ὁ Ἀφρικανός), was Bishop of Rome from 2 July 311 to his death in 314.

His elections marked the end of a period sede vacante lasting from the death of Pope Eusebius on 17 August 310 or, according to others, 309, soon after the Emperor Maxentius had exiled Eusebius to Sicily.

During his pontificate, in October 312, Constantine defeated Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge and assumed control over Rome. Constantine presented the pope with the Lateran Palace, which became the papal residence and seat of Christian governance.
