Overview Of the 20 ecumenical councils of the Catholic Church, the Council of Trent (1545-1563), is universally regarded as the greatest - in the scope of its discussion, in the number of its pronouncements, and in the extent of its influence. Here in one volume is Father Schroeder's wonderful translation of all the canons and decrees of that Council. These infallible pronouncements shine in their clarity and simplicity, and are a certain statement on many important matters of Faith at a time when the Catholic world is racked by confusion and controversy.

More About Reverend H. J. Schroeder
The Council of Trent, held in the sixteenth century, was one of the Church's most important Ecumenical Councils. It was presided over by Popes Paul III, Julius III, and Pius IV. The Council played a major role in the Counter-Reformation against Martin Luther's principles and was itself a significant reform conference. Its main objectives were to condemn the doctrines of Protestantism, effect a reformation in the Church's discipline, make known the fact that the Church's interpretation of Scripture is final, and define the relationship of faith and works in relation to salvation. Also an important point of discussion was the Real Presence and sacrificial nature of the Eucharist. The Council of Trent convened in 1545 and ended in 1563.
Reviews - What do customers think about Canons and Decrees of the Council of Trent?
Very informative but a tough read. Jan 2, 2008
I am happy I got this book because it is interesting to learn about this council. I find it a hard read though. I wish I was able to read some before I bought it to see if another book could give me similar info in an easier to read context. I am reading it concurrently with the "Catechism of the Council of Trent" and that helps.
