Why should you care about what happened at the Council of Trent?

After Luther, Calvin, and Henry VIII, Trent is one of the most frequently invoked names regarding the Reformation and Counter-Reformation of the sixteenth century. Even so, few know much about it.

Now, the celebrated author of Trent: What Happened at the Council (2012) helps you set the record straight. Available in audio or video, this 12-lecture course will impress upon you the wide-reaching cultural and religious influence that the Council of Trent has had over the centuries. Georgetown’s Fr. John O’Malley, S.J., explains the ripple effect of decisions directed toward members of the Catholic Church but felt throughout Europe.

A colorful and tumultuous affair, the Council of Trent was dogged by war and conflict from beginning to end. The leading political figures of the day were deeply involved, as were the five popes who reigned during the 18 fateful years over which it stretched. Lurching from one crisis to the next, they all had something at stake in the council.

The story of the Council of Trent continues long after its implementation. Historians have dubbed the 400 years following the council the “Tridentine Era.” Discover how vital the legacy of Trent is to your understanding of the Church today.

Summer Survey: July 2017
It reveals the humanity of Church Officials. Review by Joyce Stolberg Colorado Springs, CO (Posted on 7/27/2017)
Good video for our church group
Since I wrote a previous review I started using it for a study group at our church. Even though I loved the course I was not sure how it would be for a group. They like it as much as I do. Review by Bob (Posted on 11/26/2016)
Fall Survey: October 2016
I like O'Malley's approach to the subject matter. He appears to be objective in his thinking pattern while he considers most sides of an issue, and his delivery holds my interest. Review by Tom Gearty Boston, MA, USA (Posted on 10/26/2016)
Brought out the humanity
It brought out the humanity and human foibles of the participants and showed how God's work got done in spite of them. Review by Joyce (Posted on 10/19/2016)
