Panel B4 - A council of Bishops (? 2nd Council of Orleans, 533AD ?)

Quite why Hucher decided that this is the 2nd council I have no idea, but for the record, has this to say on the council;

The second national council, held under Childebert (June, 533), attended by twenty-five bishops, decreed that, conformably to the earnest desire of Pope Hormisdas, annual provincial councils should be held; further, that marriage could not be dissolved by will of the contracting parties for infirmities consequent on the contract; forbade the marriage of Christians and Jews; and excommunicated those who partook in flesh offered in sacrifice to idols.
