Oviedo, Council of
Oviedo, Council Of (Conciliumn Ovetense), was held about 877, according to Pagi (Mansi says the date is altogether uncertain). King Alphonso, his queen, and sons were present, and eighteen bishops. Several useful regulations were drawn up. The Church of Oviedo was erected into a metropolitan see, and Hermenegilde, who presided over it, was recognized as head over the other bishops, to labor with them for the re-establishment of discipline in the Church, which had been impaired by the rule of the infidels. See Labbe, Conc. 9:501.
