Counter reformation

Julius II
  • fearsome or warrior pope
  • patron for the arts
Pope Paul III
  • followed Julius II
  • face of the counter reformation

concil of traits
  • rejected Luther
  • called for the reform of church abuses
  • rejected luther but actually decided to get rid of indulgences
  • it was because luther did not beleive in church hierarchy- no one will follow the pope
  • reaffirmed the traditional practices of the catholic church-including the use of relics and images in church
    • relics-parts of saints after they die
  • absolutely resists limiting papal authority-makes the hierarchy stronger

Society of Jesus
