Council of Trent
The Council of Trent, meeting on and off for about 20 years in the Alpine Italian town of Trent, was the Catholic Church's response to the challenge presented by the Protestant Reformation. Its doctrinal decrees touch on many of the controversial topics debated during the times such as justification, the eucharist, and the other sacraments. Many of the doctrinal teachings of this ecumenical council are intended as definitive dogmatic pronouncements and as such are regarded as infallible. Some of the decrees of the council are pastoral and disciplinary in nature, such as the institution of a seminary system for the training of future clergy.
