9781848855137: The Church in Council: Conciliar Movements, Religious Practice and the Papacy from Nicaea to Vatican II (International Library of Historical Studies)

Councils have been of fundamental importance to the historical development of the Catholic Church. From the First Council of Nicaea in 325 CE to the reforming Second Vatican Council of 1962-5, the conciliar movement has more often than not represented the interests and prerogatives of the mass of the faithful: frequently -- especially from medieval times -- as a bulwark against the untrammelled supremacy of the Pope. Norman Tanner is arguably the outstanding scholar of church councils writing in English and his work provides an essential framework to our understanding of the development of Western Catholicism. In this volume, which assembles some of his best work on the topic, he reflects on the legacy of conciliarism, and shows how and why the apostolic spirit of Nicaea was to resurface at Vatican II.

About the Author:

Norman Tanner is Professor of Church History at the Gregorian University in Rome. A medieval historian of international stature, he is best known for his groundbreaking books on the great ecumenical councils of the Christian Church. He is in addition the author of The Church in the Later Middle Ages (I.B.Tauris History of the Christian Church, 2008) and The Ages of Faith: Popular Religion in Late Medieval England and Western Europe (I.B.Tauris, 2009).

Review:

'Norman Tanner is among the most distinguished historians writing on the councils of the church. This volume is particularly engaging because it deals with issues of great contemporary interest, such as the relationship of the councils to non-Christian religions and the councils treatment of the Eucharist. Lucid in style, it will be useful for specialists but accessible to the general reader. Highly recommended!' - John W. O'Malley, University Professor, Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA
