Summary:
"In this groundbreaking new book, acclaimed historian Charles Freeman shows that the Council of Constantinople was in fact a sham, only taking place after Theodosius's decree had already become law. The Church was acquiescing to the overwhelming power of the emperor - and the council was a cover-up."--Inside jacket.
