Council of Trent

A Council is a general meeting of the highest representatives of the Catholic Church. In the case of the Council of Trent, presided over by Pope Paul III, it began in 1545 in the Italian city of Trento, and aimed to find answers to the problems posed by Protestants and humanists. The conclusions drawn from the Council of Trent highlight the centralization of powers in the Pope who is now considered the "Universal Pastor of the Church" and is given all supremacy in matters of dogma and discipline. On the other hand, several norms were established to prevent abuses and luxuries of clergy. In short, the Council of Trent gave the Catholic Church a more centralized and authoritarian character, constituting an important reform action to limit abuse and the degradation of customs and to prevent the advance of Protestantism.
