Contemporary Accounts

There are a number of works published at the time of the Council which record the Council’s day-to-day activities, and provide some analysis of these activities.  These works often serve as a vernacular language index to the official Latin-language record in the Acta synodalia (listed above).

All the texts on this page are standard sources and it is likely that most libraries supporting Catholic Studies will own one or more of them. Check you local library catalog for availability.
