Parma (2)

Parma the chief town of the province of the same name in Italy, and formerly the capital of the duchy of Parma, is situated on both sides of the river Parma, twelve miles south from the Po, seventy-five miles south-east from Milan, and about the same distance east-north-east from Genoa. It is reported to have been the seat of a Church council in 1187, presided over by pope Gregory VIII, but nothing is known of the synodal decisions. See Hefele, Conciliengesch. v. 649; also 4:791.
