Chapter Summary

When the elector's envoy in January 1438 mediates between Pope and Council, they brought a plan to the Agenda, which may not only a political but especially canonically and theologically viable solution to the intractable Situation would have provided, in which two Universal councils, in Basel and Ferrara, can be claimed to represent universal Church. It is proposed to combine the two councils at a third location. This plan apparently met in Basel with little enthusiasm. This chapter mainly reflects the disunity which already prevailed in relation to an intermediary, arbitral activity of the Emperor in the conflict between pope and council and especially with regards to the legal legitimacy of an imperial Convocation rights. The chapter concludes that the Pontano upholds the need for authoritative convocation for the legitimacy of councils and simultaneously transmits the pragmatic needs of its era. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Basel; Convocation rights; Ferrara; legitimacy; universal Church; Universal councils
