Hey all. I'm wondering if you guys can recommend any good books about the early Church councils (Nicaea, Constantinople, Chalcedon, etc.) that give a good summary of the issues at stake, how the proceedings went, and why certain issues were decided in a certain way.

The 21 Ecumenical Councils. Karl Keating • 6/1/ Download Share.

THE CHURCH CANNOT BE REFORMED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FATHERS AND THE COUNCILS. Some years ago many of the papists occupied themselves with the councils and the fathers and at last brought all the councils together in one book.
