Council of Trent (1545-1563)

Concilium Tridentinum, the nineteenth council of the Roman Catholic Church, established the Counter-Reformation by addressing such issues as the mass, justification and the relationship between Scripture and tradition. The initial conciliatory tone toward reform became increasingly contentious over the twenty-five sessions. In the end the council defined the unity of Roman Catholicism over and against Protestantism until the twenty-first council, Vatican II (1962-1965).
