Catholic Church and the Counter Reformation
Baroque and the Counter Reformation
The Catholic Church adopted the Baroque style, they wanted people to know they would be blown away by the spirituality of the church. (Counter Reformation goes hand in hand with Baroque)
St. Teresa of Avila is sort of like the female form of Ignatius Loyola, who is a mystic, a theologian, and monastic reformer
St. Teresa of Avila, (Baroque art) the angle is stabbing her and she's feeling the pain of god
With simplicity, they had to just go back to the roots of the Catholic faith
Jesuits and Ignatius Loyola
Ignatius was about Personal Piety, this means you can't ask someone to be a good Catholic if you're not a good one yourself
Before becoming a priest, Ignatius was a knight and he believed in Spiritual Warfare. (To be a good Catholic, you must have knowledge)
The quality of priests went down because they weren't having to go to school
The Society of Jesus(Jesuits) was founded by Ignatius of Loyola
The Catholic Church does a few things, they make the training for priests better, they think it's okay to have an indulgence, not sell them.
Council of Trent
The Catholics did this for 18 years, getting together, trying to fix themselves. (Changing)
With the Catholic Doctrine, they had scripture, tradition, and the pope is authorized by god.
They do 2 things, they affirm the Catholic Doctrine, and they reformed Church practices.
