    A council, Ecumenical in its convocation, may fail to secure the approbation of the whole Church or of the pope, and thus not rank in authority with Ecumenical councils. Such was the case with the Robber Synod of (Latrocinium Ephesinum), the Synod of Pisa in , and in part with the Councils of Constance and Basle. The Catholic Church’s ecumenical movement truly began with the Second Vatican Council’s Decree on Ecumenism, Unitatis Redintegratio. In this document, the Council Fathers recognize that a divided Christianity is a scandal to the world and that the movement of the Holy Spirit was calling for the restoration of unity.

      The earlier councils pulled leaders from the entire church, but, as the church divided on various issues of theology and practice, the councils became less than truly ecumenical. The final council on the list below, the Second Vatican Council, drew Catholic leaders from all over the world, but other Christian denominations were understandably.   Both the first and second editions of the New Catholic Encyclopedia cover Church councils and synods. You can use the articles to get started, and for brief bibliographies of additional source materials.

    His list maintains the Septuagint order of books but contains only the Old Testament protocanonicals minus the Book of Esther. Council of Laodicea (c. ) A local council of the church in union with Rome produced a list of books of the Bible similar to the Council of Trent's canon. This was one of the Church's earliest decisions on a canon.   The Catholic Church, however, recognizes 21 councils to be ecumenical, or general, even though the East was missing from the councils of the second millennium. Why Do Councils Meet? When we examine the particular reasons why various councils have met over two millennia, we discover a cycle of challenge and response that brings them into session.
