Roman emperors Arcadius and Honorius decree that all privileges previously granted to Christian churches, in particular those granted to the church of Rome, must be defended. This imperial decree states:

"The privileges must not be impaired which were conferred upon the venerable Church by previous sainted Emperors. Furthermore, due enforcement shall also guard as inviolable the privileges conferred upon the Bishop of the City of Rome to ensure that it does not assume the performance of any extraordinary public service or any compulsory public service of a menial nature." [CTh 11.16.21]
