  30. 31. Reformation Europe (Late 16 c )
  31. 32. Maps and Charts 4 So what changes did the Catholics make to stop the spread of Catholicism? It’s the Catholic Reformation… the Catholic Church set two goals, one external and one internal. 1.Externally, the Church sought to attack Protestantism wherever it existed and tried to reconvert Protestants back to Catholicism. 2. Internally, the Church wanted to reform the age-old abuses and reenergize Catholicism
  32. 33. The Catholic Reformation <ul><li>In addition to attempts to stop the spread of Protestantism, the Catholic Church looked at itself and enacted internal reforms . This reforming spirit culminated with the Council of Trent that lasted on and off from 1545-1563. </li></ul><ul><li>In the town of Trent, Catholic officials met to consider what changes were necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>The Council cracked down on simony, pluralism and absenteeism. It also helped increase the level of education of the clergy. </li></ul>
  33. 34. The Catholic Reformation While Trent outlawed the selling of indulgences , the practice of granting indulgences continued . However, in the area of religious doctrine, there were no changes made. The Council confirmed the previous practices.
  34. 35. The Catholic Reformation <ul><ul><li>Another arm of the internal reform movement was an order known as the Society of Jesus . Founded by Ignatius of Loyola , the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits, sought to help Catholics rediscover their faith. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ignatius wrote a handbook, The Spiritual Exercises, to help Catholics study and practice Catholicism. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The ranks of the Jesuits grew quickly and they spread out all over the world to convert and preach a disciplined Catholic morality . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ultimately, the efforts of these loyal shock troops paid off, as many Protestants reconverted to Catholicism. </li></ul></ul>
  35. 36. Reviewing Key Facts History How did Ignatius of Loyola help to reform Catholicism? He helped reform Catholicism by establishing the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits, a religious order that took a special vow of absolute obedience to the pope and used education to spread their messages, restoring Catholicism to parts of Germany and eastern Europe and spreading it to other parts of the world.
