Council of Frankfort

Convened, 794, "by the grace of God, authority of the pope, and command of Charlemagne." It was summoned primarily far the condemnation of Adoptionism. Following a wrong translation of the Acts of the Second Council of Nicaea, 787, this local council erroneously attributed a false doctrine on the worship of images to the Council of Nicaea, but rightly condemned the supposed teaching.
