Council of London (1102)

The Council of London in 1102 was a Roman Catholic church council of the church in England convened by Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury, to debate and pass decrees to reform the clergy.[1] The council made several decisions, including confirming homosexuality as a sin in the English and wider church,[2] and for condemning the slave trade that was occurring at the time.[3] Those present included John of Tours and Roger, the latter being elected to the see of Hereford by the council.
