Given today’s events in the hall of the Synod, when the bishops rose up as a body to fight against the obvious manipulation carried on by the leadership of the Synod (Card. Baldisseri). The Synod was being stolen from the Synod Fathers. HERE
I have come up with a new nickname for this Synod.
Latrocinium… the Robber Synod. HERE
Latrocinium, “band of robbers”, comes from an expression in Pope Leo’s letter to Empress Pulcheria where he described a synod as being non iudicium sed latrocinium.
In a nutshell, the Emperor Theodosius II called a meeting in 449 at Ephesus to consider the condemnation of Eutyches at the Synod of Constantinople in 448. It’s decisions were reversed at the Council of Chalcedon in 451.
