From a chronological viewpoint, it analyzes the variety of approaches, doctrine, discipline and goals. Therefore, the authors consider the first four councils, devoted to the dialectical relationship between faith and classical culture- the medieval councils, interested in the question of the societas christiana- the Council of Trent and the First Vatican Council, a defense of Roman Catholicism before the reformers theses- and the Second Vatican Council, engaged in a pastoral approach. Problematic issues are not avoided. The fact that a history of ecumenical councils states that their historical evolution seems to be characterized by a progressive reduction of their ecumenical character (from universal to western, from western to Roman) is at least enlightening.
