Council of Trent


[excerpts, emphasis added]

The Council of Trent is the Nineteenth Ecumenical Council of the Catholic Church.

It was convened three times between December 13, 1545 and December 4, 1563

in the city of Trent (modern Trento, Alto Adige) as a response to the theological and

ecclesiological challenges of the Protestant Reformation. It is considered one of the

most important councils in the history of the Catholic Church, clearly specifying

Catholic doctrines on salvation, the sacraments, and the Biblical canon. The council

standardized the Mass throughout the church, largely by abolishing local variations.

This was known as the "Tridentine Mass", from the city's Latin name Tridentum.

The council also commissioned the first Catholic catechism, the Roman Catechism.
The Council of Trent was a major first step in the Counter-Reformation.
The main object of the council was twofold, although there were other issues that were

also discussed:

Catholic Church on all disputed points.
The history of the council is divided into three distinct periods: 1545–49, 1551–52 and 1562–63.
It closed with "Anathema to all heretics, anathema, anathema."
Dear born-again, Bible-believing, evangelical Christian, YOU are a heretic in the eyes of Rome !
