Worms, Consultation of.

Meeting of Luth. and RC theols. held 1557. Those on Evangelical side were themselves at odds, because Flacian party had refused to acknowledge Wittenberg party unless the men in this group would cleanse themselves of synergism* (see also Synergistic Controversy) and Zwinglianism (see Zwingli, Huldreich). Preliminary efforts at effecting a united front having failed, the meeting was nevertheless called, Bp. J. v. Pflug* acting as chairman; greatest difficulty arose when RC refused to accept Bible as only final norm of doctrine; meeting adjourned in December See also Schnepf, Erhard.
