Catholic Church and the Counter Reformation
The Catholic Church responded to the Protestant movement with the Counter Reformation.
The Council of Trent (1545-1563) examined how the Catholic Church would reform for the better. It played a vital role in revitalizing the Roman Catholic Church in many parts of Europe.
The Catholic Church formed a new order called the Jesuits led by Ignatius Loyola and emphasized education.
The baroque art, music, and architecture style was adopted by the Catholic Church to bring out the strong emotions of the Christian faith.
