The Council of Trent (1545-1563), spanned the pontificates of five popes and shone as a beacon to all the world, condemning errors of the Protestant Reformation and making pronouncements on a vast number of Church doctrines and disciplines.
Fr, Schroeder's translation of the Canons and Decrees of the Council of Trent elucidates for contemporary Catholics the momentous accomplishments of this council.
Simultaneously, it demonstrates the authority and clarity with which the Church makes her official pronouncements.
