Liptines Or Lestines, Synod Of

(Conciliumi Liptinense). This synod was held at Liptina or Lestines, near the convent of Laubes, in Henegau, in 743, by order of Carloman, Bonifacits presiding. Four canons were published. The bishops, earls, and governors promised in this council to observe the decrees of the Council of Germany (A.D. 742). All the clergy, moreover, promised obedience to the ancient canons; the abbots and monks received the order of St. Benedict, and a part of the revenue of the Church was assigned for a time to the prince, to enable him to carry on the wars then raging.
