About the source:

Title: Council of Clichy, Concilium Clippiacense anno 626/627
Origin: Clichy (Gaul)
Denomination: Catholic/Nicene/Chalcedonian
The Council of Clichy was convoked by King Chlotar II on the 27th of September. It is quite problematic to establish the exact year of the council. The acts mention that the bishops gathered in the 43rd year of Chlotar`s rule, but since Chlotar became king either in the end of September or the beginning of October, this could mean either 626 or 627. The synod in Clichy was much smaller in scale than the Fifth Council of Paris called by Chlotar some twelve years earlier. Forty bishops attended the council, and two more sent their representatives, which were one abbot and one deacon.
