Coblentz, Council Of
(Concilium Confluentinum), a provincial synod, was held in 922 by order of the two kings, Charles the Simple, of France, and Henry, of Germany. Eight bishops were present, Hermann, archbishop of Cologne, presiding, who drew up eight canons, of which no more than five have come down to us. The only one of any importance is the sixth, which directs that all monks shall submit in everything to, the jurisdiction and control of the bishop of the diocese; also marriages between relations, as far as the sixth degree, are forbidden.
