A careful look at the history and theology of Christianity's most important councils: Nicea (325), Constantinople (381), Ephesus (431), Chalcedon (451), Constantinople II (553), Constantinople III (680--681), and Nicea II (787). What controversies were involved; how were they resolved; what was the overall impact? This unique work--no other work yet available in English treats this subject--illustrates the contribution of these Councils in the development and formulation of Christian beliefs. It then shows how their legacies lingered throughout the centuries to inspire--or haunt--every generation.

Review 1 for First Seven Ecumenical Councils
Date:November 13, 2009
I'm enjoying the book so far. It provides clarity into what issues of theology, what people, and what events lead up to the councils. This book is written from a Catholic perspective. It would be interesting to know if a Protestant perspective would be any different than Mr. Glazier's.
