NÎMES, COUNCILS OF (Concilia Nemausensia). Of the four councils held at Nîmes those of 886 and 1284 are relatively unimportant. The synod of 394 adopted seven canons on discipline, which were first printed in 1743 and have not as yet made their way into the great collections. At the council of July 1096 Pope Urban II. presided, and sixteen disciplinary canons were adopted, which have many points of contact with the canons of the council of Clermont.

See, for the first council of Nîmes, Lauchert. pp. 183-185; for the others, Hardouin vi. 1. 397, vi. 2. 1747 ff., vii. 903 ff.; full titles under Council.  (W. W. R.*)
