    • Abstract:
      Counter Reformation is the term used to describe reforms instituted within the Catholic Church, partly in response to the challenges presented by the Protestant Reformation and partly generating from within the church hierarchy itself. It is sometimes referred to as the Catholic Reformation. The Counter Reformation comprised two main parallel threads: a positive reform of church practices, and the rooting out of perceived heresy and efforts to restore areas of Europe to Catholic domination. Both threads in the end shared a common theme: a refusal to make concessions to the newly emerging Protestants.
