|About the Book|
Originally published in 1959, this book provides a detailed study of the Council of Florence (originally known as the Council of Basel). The existence of the Council, which operated in various forms from 1431 until the mid-fifteenth century, constituted a key event in the history of the Church, the repercussions of which can be seen in the development of the Reformation. Whilst previous accounts had analysed the Council in a generalised manner or concentrated on specific aspects, this was the first extended study of its operations. Consummately researched, this book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ecclesiastical history.
