Counter-Reformation

Gegenreformation

The Pope declared war on Luther's Reformation -- with the Counter-Reformation: The Council of Trent (1545-1563) was the inspiration for extensive reforms to push back Protestantism, which was getting established politically and institutionally -- a process that lasted into the 18th century. Initially, the recatholisation of Protestant territories was in part achieved violently with the help of political power and through the reorganisation of the Inquisition. Yet at the same time there originated more new religious orders devoted to the poor, the sick, education or mission work than in any other epoch of Church history. In art, music and literature the renewed Catholic life manifested a tremendous productivity. A documentary about an epoch that continues to resonate strongly today.
