Ecumenical Councils


I need a downloadable credible book or any other reference solely dedicated on the ecumenical councils, their history and the reasons they were convened and who convened them. What I have are different references on the seven councils, usually lacking of historical backgrounds.

Any help? Thanks.



Any other downloadable reference independent from the Catholic Church?


Scroll down for the councils.


Thank you so much.:slight_smile:
