Nantes, Council of

Resource Toolbox

Two important ecclesiastical assemblages were held in the city of Nantes, France, besides those of the Huguenots (q.v.). The first Church council was held about the year 1127, under the count Conon; Hildebert, archbishop of Tours, presiding. It was ruled that children by an incestuous marriage should have no share in the succession of their parents; and that the children of priests should not receive holy orders except they should first have taken monastic vows. Anathema was pronounced against those who plundered shipwrecked property (Conc. tom. 10, page 918). A second Church council was held there in 1264; Vincent, archbishop of Tours, presiding. Nine canons were published. The most important (2) forbids the number of monks in any priory or abbey to be diminished (5) forbids to set more than two dishes before the bishop in visitation, and orders that if more have been prepared they shall be given to the poor; (6) forbids pluralities; (7) forbids, under pain of excommunication, to demand toll of the clergy (Conc. tom. 11, page 826).
