A careful look at the history and theology of Christianity's most important councils: Nicea (325), Constantinople (381), Ephesus (431), Chalcedon (451), Constantinople II (553), Constantinople III (680--681), and Nicea II (787). What controversies were involved; how were they resolved; what was the overall impact? This unique work--no other work yet available in English treats this subject--illustrates the contribution of these Councils in the development and formulation of Christian beliefs. It then shows how their legacies lingered throughout the centuries to inspire--or haunt--every generation.
