Next Lecture November 22: The Council of Trent

In 1545, the Catholic hierarchy met in the imperial city of Trent to decide how to respond to the Protestant Reformation. Over the course of eighteen years, the council responded to Protestant criticisms by reaffirming key doctrines but also took steps to reform abuses which contributed to the Protestant schism. Trent would reshape and revitalize the Catholic Church in Europe and set the stage as Catholicism became a global faith in the early modern era. On Sunday November 22, Controversies in Church History will examine the impact of the council and why its achievements are still important (and controversial!) in the life of the Church today. The lecture will be broadcast live on Zoom and on our Facebook page. If you would like to register via Zoom, please click on this link.
