From Trent to Vatican II

This chapter explores the impact of Trent in Latin America, post-Tridentine thinking about American Catholicism, and the Catholic baroque. Trent's decrees assumed a new function as the blueprints for Christianity in the Americas, linking Church order in Spain's colonies with the institutionalization of the faith for millions of believers. Trent became a constituent element of Latin America's sociohistorical identity.

Keywords:   Council of Trent, Latin America, Tridentine reforms, Americas, Catholicism, Catholic baroque
