Spirit of the Counter-Reformation

The Spirit of the Counter-Reformation

H. Outram Evennett
Edited by John Bossy

Evennett isolates the special and positive characteristics of the Counter-Reformation and accounts for them in relation to the environment in which they developed. He sees in the spirit of the Counter-Reformation an attempt not to check but to extend and come to terms with the more individualistic and modern environment in which the Catholic Church found itself.

ISBN: 978-0-268-06901-8

Publication Year: 1991

“The book is outstanding because it presents a new and perceptive approach to the whole question of Catholic reform in the sixteenth century. . . . Perhaps the most important contribution yet made by an English-speaking historian in this field of study.” — The Catholic Historical Review
