Ecumenical council

An ecumenical council (or oecumenical council; also general council) is a conference of the bishops of the whole Christian Church convened to discuss and settle matters of Church doctrine and practice. The word derives from the Greek language “Οικουμένη”, which literally means “the inhabited world”, which first referred to the Roman Empire and later was extended to apply to the world in general.
