600th anniversary of the Council of Constance
The Council of Constance significantly shaped the course of European history and is thought to be the largest meeting of religious figures, politicians and academics in the Middle Ages. Between 1414 and 1418 church representatives assembled in Constance to discuss the future of the divided church and to elect a new Pope. The agreements that were made at the time determined the future development of the Catholic Church. Celebrations to mark the 600th anniversary of the Council of Constance will get under way in the town in 2014.
