The Council of Constantinople of 553, often called Constantinople II or the Fifth Ecumenical Council, has been described as by far the most problematic of all of the church councils. The methods employed by the Council and the domineering emperor who controlled it included brutality towards opponents and the falsification of documents, among other charges. This timely and detailed translation by acclaimed ecclesiastical scholar Richard Price argues, however, that the theology of the council was both opportune and constructive and that its contributions to Christian unity was well-intentioned and not wholly unsuccessful, as he reevaluates material long neglected by historians of the period.
