Langres, Councils of
LANGRES, COUNCILS OF
Several assemblies held at the diocesan seat of Langres, in northeast France. In 859 bishops from the Provinces of Lyons, Vienne, and Arles met at Langres and revised the canons on predestination made at valence in 855. A few weeks later this new version was proposed by remigius of Lyons to the council at Savonnières (C.J. Von Hefele, Histoire des conciles d'après les documents originaux, tr. and continued by H. Leclercq, 4:216–217, 1336). Other Langres councils included the provincial council for Lyons held in 830, mentioned in a donation charter (ibid. 4:82). A charter of 883 speaks of a diocesan synod held at Langres in that year (ibid. 4:1356), and in 1116 two further synods were assembled, one with a papal legate, the archbishop of Vienne, copresiding with the bishop of Langres (ibid. 5:558).
