Louis XII of France summons a synod of his bishops at Tours to condemn the actions of Pope Julius II. The synod concludes that the Pope's egregious conduct in reneging on the French alliance justifies Louis in declaring war on the Pope and his new allies. It also recommends that, in the circumstances, a general council of the church should be called.
