From Trent to Vatican II

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter presents a brief historical background of Trent. It is argued that Trent offered a doctrinal response to the challenges of the Protestant Reformation, as well as a reform council, marking the zenith of a long and often frustrating process of inner Church reform dating back at least two centuries. The Catholic reform movement is described, and Trent and the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) are compared. An overview of the chapters in this volume is presented.

Keywords:   Council of Trent, Second Vatican Council, Vatican II, Catholic reform movement
