Chapter Summary

The canons of the Council of Agde, however, did not share the fate of either their author or their royal sponsor. Along with those canons issued by the Councils of Orléans and Epaone, they would prove to be among the most influential precedents for subsequent Frankish conciliar decrees. Although Alaric's name mysteriously disappeared from some manuscripts of Agde's canonical record, and Caesarius stopped attending royally convoked synods altogether, many of the broad issues debated and discussed at the council of 506 did not lose their relevance for the Gallic church. The innovations of the first Frankish council were neither in its protocol, nor in the issues its participants discussed, but rather in the ways that it addressed these issues.

Keywords: Council of Agde; eighth century; Frankish council
