Source: portableantiquities

Roman emperors Honorius and Theodosius II order that all previous laws against Donatists, Montenses, Manichaeans, Priscillianists, and pagans must remain in place. Any buildings of their which are found must be confiscated and turned over to the Catholic Church.

This new law states:

"All decrees which We have issued against Donatists, Montenses, Manichaeans, Priscillianists, or the pagans will not only remain in force but must be enforced to the fullest extent possible.

Buildings being used by these groups are to be confiscated and handed over to the churches." [CTh 16.5.43]
