Overview

Disciplinary Decrees of the General Councils: Text, Translation, and Commentary covers the disciplinary decrees enacted by the Catholic Church in her general councils up to and exclusive of the Council of Trent. H. J. Schroeder provides the original texts, English translations and commentary on the historical background of the decrees. "For, after all, the full scope and import of a conciliar decision, whether of a dogmatic or disciplinary nature, can be grasped only when studied in the light of the conditions and forces that produced it." The work includes selected canons from the first seven councils (the full text of these councils can found in volume 14 of the Early Church Fathers Series), and all the canons from the great Medieval Councils. It also includes selected canons from the late medieval councils.

The arrangement of the work is the same throughout. First Schroeder provides a historical sketch of the council; this is followed by a digest of the decree, the decree itself (in both the Latin or Greek and English), and the commentary.

With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Disciplinary Decrees of the General Councils: Text, Translation, and Commentary are tagged and appear on mouse-over. What’s more, Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your Logos library. This makes this text more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “peace” or “Viaticum.”
