Term: Council of Ancyra

DEFINITION:
Also known as the Synod of Ancyra, this was a meeting of Christian elders held in Ancyra in the Roman province of Galatia (modern Ankara, Turkey) in 314 C.E. It’s important because it was the first meeting after the end of Roman persecution of Christianity with the overthrowing of Maximinus the previous year. Among the things they ordered were punishments for those who worshiped (freely or due to force) with Pagans, that clergy should not be vegetarians, that if you’re under 20 years old and have sex with animals you can be admitted to the church, people who commit adultery are not completely accepted in a church for seven years, and women (nothing about men) who perform abortions or make drugs for abortion must serve ten years of penance. It also states that if you perform divinations, follow Pagan traditions, or do magick you must suffer five years of penance.
