Councils of N%C3%AEmes

The Councils of Nîmes (Latin: Concilia Nemausensia) is the name given to a series of four religious synods that took place in Nîmes, southern France, during the Middle Ages.[1]

The four councils took place in 394, 886, 1096, and 1284.[1]

  1. The First Council of 394 (referred to by Sulpicius Severus) resulted in the adoption of seven canons on church discipline,[1] including the forbidding of female deaconesses.
  2. The Second Council of 886 is considered to be of little historical importance.[1]
  3. The Third Council of July 1096 was presided over by Pope Urban II, and resulted in the adoption of sixteen disciplinary canons.[1]
  4. The Fourth Council of 1284 is considered to be of little historical importance.[1]
