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, 4:216217, 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).

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
