It remains exciting in The last Year of the Anniversary in Constance
Constance celebrates the Anniversary of the Council from 2014 to 2018, which took place here 600 Years ago. The Aim of the Council Was, among other things, to elect a new Pope and thus to end the Great Western Schism – a Division of the Catholic Church. In the Time before the Council There were three Popes who all wanted Supremacy in the Catholic Church. On 11. On 1 November 1417, the new Pope Martin V was elected and the Council Was terminated after three and a half Years on the 22.4.1418. Thus, 2018 is the last Year of the Anniversary in Constance with many interesting Exhibitions and Events and a crowning Finale on May 22. July – the „Feast for Europe.”
Motto of the Council Year 2018: Year of Culture
