Ancient councils have been of utmost importance for the development of ecclesiastical structures and institutions. In order to facilitate their study, the Clauis conciliorum occidentalium contains the vaste number of Western synodal documents belonging to the first seven centuries in the form of an index: Each council has been listed with an entry of its own which comprises the most important scholarly literature, the history of the tradition of its records including a short summary or synopsis of their contents as well as ancient and modern translations. In addition, there are also listed those councils whose records are lost. In this case, the sources are presented from which the gathering of a synod can be concluded. Whenever possible, the issues discussed by the bishops are outlined.

Andreas Weckwerth studied Catholic Theology, Classics, and History; he obtained doctorates in Theology (2003) and Classics (2006). He is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Bonn and as an associate lecturer at the University of Cologne.
