So this is a short little paragraph about conciliarism. I don't know as much as I should about it, because when you take time out of your day to see a movie - say, five times in the last week - it cuts down on your reading time. Brick. The stuff addictions are made of. Anyway, general councils vs. papal authority. What's up with that? It would seem that catholic authority, maybe like all authority everywhere, but at the very LEAST like political authority in the middle ages, is constructed by people appealing to new authority when dissatisfied with pre-existing authority. I need to find a good summary of the cases that got appealed to the various councils, and which of these actually got heard by said councils. If you have my answers hit me up.
