Second Council of Nicaea

Seventh Ecumenical Council of the Church, held in 787.

Held in what is now Turkey.

This was one of many rules (canons) they endorsed. I found myself thinking, God give us bishops and pastors like this today:

Canon 2: Candidates for a bishop's orders must know the Psalter by heart and must have read thoroughly, not cursorily, all the sacred Scriptures.
