The Council of Trent, the 19th ecumenical council of the Roman Catholic church, was held at Trent in northern Italy between 1545 and 1563. Tradition was declared coequal to Scripture as a source of spiritual knowledge, and the sole right of the church to interpret the Bible was asserted.

Now maybe my history is sketchy... were there any ecumenical council's after this that negated it, or is this still the stance of the RC church, and if so, can somebody please give biblical support this belief that tradition is co-equal with scripture.

i guess by definition, a RC could say that since it is tradition to consider tradition co-equal with scripture, that is all the support they need. what i'm after folks is good theology, not bad philosophy.
