This list is based on that of Ramsay MacMullen, Voting About God in Early Church Councils, (New Haven 2006), pp. 2-4. We have, however, added and subtracted from the original list to make it more accurate and complete.¬†The website also features¬†Friedrich Maassens’ list of Early Councils in Geschichte der Quellen und der Literatur des canonischen Rechts im Abendlande.
