2015 is the eighth centenary of Lateran IV – often described as the most important western church council between the Council of Nicea (325) and the Reformation. Dr Claire Taylor of the Dept of History, one of the scholars belonging to that department’s Heresy Network, introduced some of the key themes of the council and how it crystallized many aspects of western practice and was significant in the development of the notion of papal supremacy.
