Definition of concord

3. A bishop of Arles (A.D. 374, circ. 409), canonized as a saint, was one of the twenty-two or thirty bishops present at the first council of Valence (A.D. 374). One of the decrees of this council was that those ecclesiastics who, in order to get rid of the burdens of office, accused themselves of mortal sin, should be taken at their word. Under this canon came Acceptus, bishop of Fregus, whom Concordius defended in the council (Tillemont, Hist. Eccl. 8:551-553).
