Topic: Constantia


  
  3. Constantia and Theodosius By Joseph Addison. Matthews, Brander. 1907. The Short-Story
Constantia, who was overawed with the authority of her father, and unable to object anything against so advantageous a match, received the proposal with a profound silence, which her father commended in her, as the most decent manner of a virgin’s giving her consent to an overture of that kind.
Constantia, who knew that nothing but the report of her marriage could have driven him to such extremities, was not to be comforted.
Constantia had now no relief but in her devotions and exercises of religion, to which her afflictions had so entirely subjected her mind, that after some years had abated the violence of her sorrows, and settled her thoughts in a kind of tranquillity, she resolved to pass the remainder of her days in a convent.

Constantia interceded with her half- brother for the life of her husband, and Constantine spared Licinius' life, ordering him to reside at Thessalonike as a private citizen[[9]].
