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

- The Third Council of July 1096 was presided over by Pope Urban II, and resulted in the adoption of sixteen disciplinary canons.
- The Fourth Council of 1284 is considered to be of little historical importance.
