To respond to various disagreements, the Christian church has often held councils to clarify matters of doctrine, and to lay down various rules for governing the church. The prototypical council is recorded in the Biblical book, 'The Acts of the Apostles'.
In this case a serious disagreement arose over the need for coverts to the faith to be circumcised. As a result, a council was held in Jerusalem in the presence of the apostles. They decided there was only a need to 'abstain from food offered to idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood'.

Since the time of the apostles numerous disagreements have arisen in the church over issues ranging from the nature of Christ to the place of images or icons within the context of worship. The councils assembled were of often local affairs, meant to deal with issues within a province. But in more far-reaching matters, general or 'ecumenical' councils were called, which were supposed to involve the entire Christian church.

The councils in this work cover the period of the first seven ecumenical councils, until the year 787 AD.

1. Carthage under Cyprian (257 AD)
2. Ancyra (314 AD)
