Book of the Canons
Book Of The Canons
(βίβλος κανόνων, Codex Canonum), a collection of the various canons enacted in the councils of Nicaea, Ancyra, Neocaesarea, Laodicea, Gangra, Antioch, Constantinople, Ephesus, and Chalcedon, numbering in all one hundred and seventy-eight canons. Its date is uncertain, but it was probably never universally authoritative. It was published by Justellus in 1610 (Codex Canonun Eccles. Univ. Paris, 8vo), with a Latin version and notes.
