By the time the first ecumenical council opened at Nicaea in 325, Rome as a city had flourished for a thousand years, and as an Empire, regarded as eternal and universal, had dominated 50-60 million inhabitants of the Mediterranean littoral and western Europe for over three hundred. This book illustrates the contributions of these councils in the development and formulation of Christian beliefs.

User Review  - Vsncruz - Goodreads

A succinct introduction before one plunges into the riches of any council (eg, Acts 15). Especially when posed with Jesus' question, "Who do you say I am?"(Mark 8:29). Read full review
