  • The Synod of Neo-Caesarea was a church synod held in Neocaesarea, Pontus, shortly after the Synod of Ancyra, probably about 314 or 315. Its principal work was the adoption of fifteen disciplinary canons, which were subsequently accepted as ecumenical by the Council of Chalcedon, 451, and of which the most important are the following: i. degrading priests who marry after ordination vii. forbidding a priest to be present at the second marriage of any one viii. refusing ordination to the husband of an adulteress xi. fixing thirty years as the age below which one might not be ordained xiii. according to city priests the precedence over country priests xiv. permitting Chorepiscopi to celebrate the sacraments xv. requiring that there be seven deacons in every city.
