The Council of Constance (1414–1418) is often regarded as a landmark of late medieval history, firstly because of the decrees and theological decisions the council approved, and secondly because of the number of clerics and delegates who convened in the German city. The council’s primary goal was to end the Great Schism that divided Western Christianity since 1378. The organisation and coordination of this great assembly was undertaken by Sigismund of Luxemburg, King of Hungary and elected King of the Romans. Hungarian historiography lacks composite works in connection with the council, because it usually deals with subtopics. Therefore, the present essay intends to give an overall picture about the issues discussed in Constance. The contemporaries distinguished between the major and minor cases. The causa unionis, causa fidei and causa reformationis were of primary importance, the council had to find a solution for these problems above all. The proceedings of union, faith and reformation of the church and their outcomes are presented in the first three chapters. The last part of the study gives a brief description of some of the minor cases, namely the tyrannicide theories of Jean Petit and Johannes Falkenberg, the discussions about the voting system and the nationality debate between the Natio Anglicana and Natio Gallicana.
