Council of Constantinople (A.D. 382)
FREE Catholic Classes
In the summer of 382 a council of the oriental bishops, convoked by Theodosius, met in the imperial city. We still have its important profession of faith, often wrongly attributed to the Second General Council (i.e. at Constantinople in the preceding year), exhibiting the doctrinal agreement of all the Christian churches ; also two canons (5 and 6) wrongly put among the canons of the Second General Council. In the summer of the next year (383) Theodosius convoked another council, with the hope of uniting all factions and parties among the Christians on the basis of a general acceptance of the teachings of the Ante-Nicene Fathers. He met with a qualified success ( Socrates, V, 10); among the most stubborn of those who resisted was Eunomius (see EUNOMIANISM ).
