Freedom of Religion

Cassiodorus, Variae 10.26.4 (King Theodahad to Emperor Justinian, anno 535; tr. S.J.B. Barnish):
Indeed, I do not presume to exercise judgement in those cases where I have no special mandate. For, since the Deity allows various religions to exist, I do not dare to impose one alone.

earum siquidem rerum iudicium non praesumimus, unde mandatum specialiter non habemus. nam cum divinitas patiatur diversas religiones esse, nos unam non audemus imponere.
