Excerpt from The Decrees of the Vatican Council
Moreover, though the Aéta of Nicea are almost wholly lost, it is not improbable that they, like the A&a of Ephesus, were quite as voluminous as those of the Vatican. Yet Nicea lasted only sixty-eight, Ephesus seventy, the Vatican 222 days.* It is no exaggeration then to say that as compared with the two earlier Councils the Vatican was made up of twice as many bishops, representing ten times as many nations and spending thrice as much time over its decrees. Yet it is to Nicea and Ephesus we owe the two fundamental doctrines of the divinity and humanity of jesus christ. And men who, rightly, find no difficulty in accepting the two earlier councils, scruple to accept the last.
