Council of Trent

The Council of Trent was the 19th Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church.  It opened on Dec. 13, 1545, and closed on Dec. 4, 1563, and was held in Trent--in Northern Italy.  The Council was a response to the Reformation which was then heavily underway.  The Council condemned the Reformation's doctrine of justification by faith alone and also reestablished various practices within the Roman Catholic Church.

The Council of Trent was called by Pope Paul III, who was pope from 1534 to 1549.
