Altino, Council of
Altino, Council Of (Concilium Altinense); Altino is a city of Italy, situated on the Adriatic Gulf. It was formerly an episcopal see, but its destruction compelled the removal of the bishop's chair to Torcello. The council was held in 802; and in it Paulinus of Aquilea implored the help of Charlemagne against John, duke of Venice, who had thrown down from the top of a tower John, patriarch of Grade. See Labbe, Concil. 7, 1187.
