Many councils were held at Lyons, Fr., beginning in the 470s. RC ecumenical council Lyons I 1245 tried unsuccessfully to unseat Frederick* II; enjoined preaching of crusade* against Saracens, but without effect. RC ecumenical council Lyons II 1274 tried to remove the schism of 1054 (see Schism, 6); Gk. representatives agreed to terms of union, including filioque (see Filioque Controversy), but union dissolved in the 1280s. See also Councils and Synods, 4.
