The Councils, Episode 13: Second Council of Nicea

In an unusual turn (though an unsurprising one) an Emperor leads the charge of heresy. At issue? Images and statues. Emperor Leo III invest iconoclasm and goes on to destroy images and statues of Our Lord, Our Lady, and the saints, all throughout the empire. While the Patriarch of Constantinople opposes him, the emperor, and then his son, continue the persecution. Finally a regent asks Pope Hadrian I for an ecumenical council and the matters are resolved at that council.
