Product Description

The Protestant Reformation prompted the Council of Trent (1545-1563). The council fathers clarified and developed major pronouncements, as well as expounding Catholic teaching, doctrines, and practices, during its sessions. The Catechism of the Council of Trent (also known as the Roman Catechism) was published in Latin in 1566 by order of the council, which was then issued and confirmed by Pope St Pius V. Originally meant for priests, this catechism became the official manual of popular instruction. Since then, numerous popes, bishops, and synods have promoted and urged the usage of this catechism.

The catechism provides the faithful with a set and stable scheme of instruction that follows the Council's dogmatic definitions in four parts: The Apostle's Creed, The Sacraments, The Ten Commandments, and The Lord's Prayer. Because of the relevance of this catechism, PCP, Inc. chose to reprint the Fathers Callan & McHugh's 1923 translation in order to reach a wider audience of those desiring to understand the Church's official position on doctrinal and moral issues.

This version is produced on acid-free paper with real ink and has a beautiful green hardback bound with sewn signatures to keep the pages from falling out. It's built to last through numerous readings and studies.
