Bologna, Council of
Bologna, Council Of (Conciliuin Bononsiense), was held in 1317 by Raynaldus, archbishop of Ravenna, and eight of his suffragans. Twenty-four articles were published. In them allusion is made to the licentious life of the clergy, which rendered them an object of contempt to the people, and gave them a handle for usurping the property and rights of the Church. In canon 4 it was forbidden to the clergy to carry arms, and to enter any place of bad fame; it also minutely described the fashion and quality of their dress. In canon 12, it was forbidden to say any other mass during mass at the high-altar (cumt missa celebratur ins nota). See Labbe, Concil. 11:1655.
