Two ecclesiastical councils (Councils/Synods) are attested as having assembled in the Gallic civitas (city) of Vaison between the 5th and 6th centuries CE, in 442 and 529 CE, respectively. While both were regional meetings, the canons produced at the two councils later would prove influential beyond southern Gaul thanks to their inclusion in multiple canonical collections and their utilization as precedents in subsequent conciliar legislation.
