The reform of the Catholic Church in the sixteenth century was historically as important as the contemporary Protestant Reformation. Though never committed solely to fighting Protestantism, it inevitably also became a Counter Reformation, since it soon face the threat created by Luther and his successors. The century between the career of Ignatius Loyola nad that of Vincent de Paul became a classic age of Catholicism. The lives of its saints, popes and secular champions could hardly be made more fascinating by any novelist. A must-read for Catholics or for anyone who wishes to greater understand the bedrock of Western Civilization and the beginning of Two Cultures in Europe and the world.
