Description

Over 430 dignitaries attended Lateran V (1512-1517), including over 280 ranked bishop or higher, the majority from Italy or Spain, though the Greeks of Rhodes and the Maronites of Lebanon were also represented. Committees of prelates prepared materials in three groups of 20, focusing on faith; unity, peace and crusade; and reform. Their proposals were then debated in general congregations. Session VIII attempted to broker peace between Venice and the Empire, also calling for an expedition against the Turks. Hungary's attention was on the threat of a Turkish invasion; a large element in the Emperor Maximilian's letter of early 1517 comments on the Turkish occupation of Egypt.
