Council of Constance

Decrees of the Council of Constance (A.D. 1414-18), assembled for the eradication of the Western Schism, the elimination of errors and heresies, and for the reform of the Church. During the Council, articles of John Wyclif and John Hus were condemned, it was decreed that John Hus be relinquished to the secular court for judgment, and Martin V (Oddone Colonna) was unanimously elected Pope – thus ending the schism.
