9780809140190: The General Councils: A History of the Twenty-One Church Councils from Nicaea to Vatican II

Tracing the story of the Catholic Church's 21 general councils is one of the best ways to learn about the 2,000-year course of Christianity, affirms church historian Christopher Bellitto. In this book, sister volume to his acclaimed Renewing Christianity, he offers readers a succinct history of the 21 general councils, beginning with the First Council of Nicaea in the year 325 and ending with the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s. Bellitto organizes the councils into four parts: the councils of the early church, of the Middle Ages, of the Reformation and of modern times (Vatican I and II). And he introduces readers to the historical contexts, major tasks, achievements and failures of the councils and their impact on their times. Timely and informational, The General Councils is ideal for undergraduates and general readers.

Review:

A very useful survey, for that matter, and it is also very readable. -- Gregorianum

An easy read for beginners. -- Church

Brilliant. -- Library Journal

The book would be a good introduction for parish libraries, college and university libraries, as well as in theological collections. --Catholic Library World

This work's greatest value is is bringing together for undergraduates a useful summary of these councils. --Religious Studies Review

Well organized and clearly written, this book will serve many as a reference source for specific councils. --Choice
