Conciliarism was a reform movement in the 14th-, 15th- and 16th-century Catholic Church which held that supreme authority in the Church resided with an Ecumenical council, apart from, or even against, the pope. The movement emerged in response to the Western Schism between rival popes in Rome and Avignon. The schism inspired the summoning of the Council of Pisa, which failed to end the schism, . Conciliarity is the adherence of various Christian communities to the authority of ecumenical councils and to synodal church governance. It is not to be confused with conciliarism, which is a particular historical movement within the Catholic Church. Different churches interpret conciliarity different ways.
The book is * The Journal of Theological Studies * This elegant and vividly written book is never jargon-ridden or obscure; it is closley argued, and makes demands on its readers. It is also hugely important, a model of service the church historian has to offer the church. Conciliarism was rooted in church tradition, which valued the great councils of Antiquity as defenders of true doctrine. It became a movement in reaction to the Great Western Schism (–). Theologians like Peter of Ailly and John Gerson, as well as canonists like Francesco Zabarella, argued for a general council to resolve the schism. Conciliarism is one of the oldest and most essential means of decision-making in the history of the Christian Church. Indeed, as a leading Orthodox theologian Alexander Schmemann states, 'Before we understand the place and the function of the council in the Church, we must, therefore, see the Church herself as a council.' Paul Valliere tells the story of councils and conciliar decision-making. The Conciliarist Tradition: Constitutionalism in the Catholic Church | Francis Oakley | download | B–OK.
