The Synod of Verona was held in 1184 under the auspices of Pope Lucius III. It passed a lengthy decree concerning the trial and punishment of heretics.

The synod of Verona is most notable for condemning the Waldensians under the charge of witchcraft; the charge was later amended to include heresy. The Synod of Verona condemns Cathars, and Waldensians as heretics.
