The second Vatican Council was convened by Pope John XXIII between 1962 and 1965. It marked a fundamental shift toward the modern Church and its far-reaching innovations replaced or radically changed many of the practices, rules, and attitudes that had dominated Catholic life and culturesince the Council of Trent in the sixteenth century. In this book a distinguished team of historians and theologians offers an impartial investigation of the relationship between Vatican II and Trent by examining such issues as Eucharistic theology, liturgical change, clerical reform, the laity,the role of women, marriage, confession, devotion to Mary, and interfaith understanding. As the first book to present such a comprehensive study of the connection between the two great Councils, this is an invaluable resource for students, theologians, and church historians, as well as for bishops,clergy, and religious educators.

Editorial Reviews

"No other book contributes more to the understanding of the Council and the Catholic Church. By comparing the continuities as well as discontinuities between Vatican II and Trent, the authors, all renowned theologians, illumine a host of central and debated issues within contemporarytheology. This book is a must read for anyone interested in Roman Catholicism and how it has sought to meet the challenges of the Protestant Reformation and modernity."--Francis Schussler Fiorenza, Stillman Professor of Roman Catholic Studies, Harvard Divinity School
