Council of Constance

Martin elected pope at Council of Constance

The Council of Constance (A.D. 1414-18) was assembled for the eradication of the Western Schism, elimination of errors and heresies, and reform of the Church. During the Council, articles of John Wyclif and John Hus were condemned and it was decreed John Hus be relinquished to secular court for judgment. Also, Martin V (Oddone Colonna) was unanimously elected Pope – thus ending the schism. Image above links to Tanner translation of the Council decrees. ISBN recommendation: 0-87840-490-2
