The Catholic Reformation

£4.99

Product description

" 'The Catholic Reformation began before the Protestant Revolt as a continuation of the Christian humanism movement of the late fifteenth century. It not only amended the discipline of the Church, but exerted its influence in every field of human endeavour.' This is the thesis of Dr Janelle's book in which he corrects the world's generally mistaken impression that Catholic reform, commonly termed the Counter-Reformation, was a consequence of and reaction against the Protestant Reformation. Analysing the historic movement in all its aspects, he presents the first work on this subject ever published in English. Covering the period from the late fifteenth to the seventeenth century, the author explains the causes of disease within the Church, pays attention in detail to the Council of Trent and moves to do away with abuse, discusses thoroughly and competently the work and characteristics of each of the period's new religious orders, and delves into the effects of the Christian humanist movement upon the Catholic Church and the world. Dr Janelle has combined assiduous research and scholarly analysis with honest determination to bring to light new and revealing facts about the nature, spirit, and ultimate result of this most significant movement whose importance in history, both religious and secular, can hardly be overestimated."

Book in very good condition.
