Resource Toolbox
Additional Links

A council of the archbishops and bishops of a country or region under the presidency of a legate of the Holy See which determines the matter to be discussed and ratifies the council's decrees. These decrees bind the entire country or region, only a bishop of the region having the power to dispense from them. A plenary council has no powers to define doctrine; its sphere is regulatory and disciplinary.
