Copenhagen, Council of
Copenhagen, Council Of
(Concilium Hafniense). The place in which this council was held is not altogether certain; it was assembled by Peter Lukins, archbishop of Lund, in 1425. His suffragans, and some other bishops, abbots, etc., were present. A synodal letter was drawn up for the re-establishment of discipline, and the reformation of morals among both clergy and laity. These rules forbid luxury, drunkenness, frequenting wine-shops, carrying arms, having concubines, etc. All troublers of State or Church were excommunicated; nuns were forbidden to leave their convent without permission, and bishops to ordain any one belonging to another diocese without the consent of the bishop of that diocese.
