399 HONORIUS FLAVIUS (364-423 C.E.)
The Western Roman Emperor and son of Theodosius. He confiscated gold and silver which had been collected by the synagogues to be sent to Jerusalem. He defined Judaism as an unworthy superstition (superstitio indigna). He was greatly influenced by St. Ambrose, and his legislation is considered to be a repercussion of the reign of Julian the Apostate.
