The Catholic Reformation synopsis

Catholic reform offers a comprehensive history of "counter-reform in early modern Europe". Beginning in the Middle Ages, Michael Mollet traces clearly the continuing transformation of the Catholic religion into its structures, bodies and creed.

He discusses the gain in the momentum of Catholic renewal from the time of the Council of Trent, and considers the profound impact of Protestant reform in accelerating its renewal. This book explores how and why Catholic reform took place, stressing that the moves towards restoration were well under way before the Protestant Reformation. Michael Mollet also shows the tremendous impact he has left not only on the papacy, church leaders, religious rites and practice, but also on the lives of ordinary people - their culture, their arts, their attitudes and their relationships.

The process of Catholic reform throughout the continent is reflected in a new, indispensable questionnaire that provides a broad overview of religious, political and cultural history at the time.
