Front Cover
Liturgical Press, 1983 - Religion - 342 pages
4 Reviews
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.

I'm enjoying the book so far. It provides clarity into what issues of theology, what people, and what events lead up to the councils. This book is written from a Catholic perspective. It would be interesting to know if a Protestant perspective would be any different than Mr. Glazier's. Read full review
