Abstract

The Changing Status of the Theologians in the General Councils of the West: Pisa (1409) to Trent (1545-63) NELSON H. MINNICH I WASHINGTON, D.C. The status of university-trained theologians in the general councils of the Western Church during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries changed over time. While their role of advising the council on theological issues remained the same, the organizational structures in which they proffered their opinions and the authority with which they rendered them varied in the course of the one and a half centuries from the Council of Pisa (1409) to that of Trent (1545-63). In the beginning of the period at Pisa, theologians were members of conciliar deputations organized according to ecclesiastical provinces and nations in which they cast deliberative votes as procurators of absent prelates and corporations. By 1439 theologians at Basel and Florence were exercising in their own right as theologians a deliberative vote equal to that of cardinals and bishops in the conciliar deputations and estates. By the end of this period at Trent, theologians assembled apart from the conciliar fathers in what were called congregations of minor theologians in which they gave their opinions but rendered neither a consultative nor deliberative
