John O’Malley, S.J., explains the ripple effect of decisions directed toward members of the Catholic Church but felt throughout Europe.

A colorful and tumultuous affair, the Council of Trent was dogged by war and conflict from beginning to end. The leading political figures of the day were deeply involved, as were the five popes who reigned during the 18 fateful years over which it stretched. Lurching from one crisis to the next, they all had something at stake in the council.

The story of the Council of Trent continues long after its implementation. Historians have dubbed the 400 years following the council the “Tridentine Era.” Discover how vital the legacy of Trent is to your understanding of the Church today.

    Terrific course

    Fr. O’Malley always does a terrific job. The course is both insightful and easy to listen to. I learned a great deal from both this course and his course on Vatican II.

  3. Thomas

    Articulate presenter; well-researched yet interactive. No tendency towards overstatement.

    Wonderfully conversational style

    A wonderfully conversational style filled with information and anecdote. His verbal flow is easy to follow and engaging.

  5. Joyce

    Brought out the humanity

    It brought out the humanity and human foibles of the participants and showed how God’s work got done in spite of them.

  6. Tom G., MA

    Fall Survey: October 2016

    I like O’Malley’s approach to the subject matter. He appears to be objective in his thinking pattern while he considers most sides of an issue, and his delivery holds my interest.

  7. Bob

    Good video for our church group

    Since I wrote a previous review I started using it for a study group at our church. Even though I loved the course I was not sure how it would be for a group. They like it as much as I do.

  8. Joyce S., CO

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    It reveals the humanity of Church Officials.
