This is a unique book focusing on an interesting issue. Roman Catholicism in the early modern age has been designated by a variety of names: Counter-Reformation, Catholic Reformation, the Baroque Age, the Tridentine Age, and the Confessional Age. Why? What contexts and presuppositions in the last two centuries have led to this multiplicity? O'Malley is a leading authority and provides here the most significant and well-documented overview of this issue and its scholarship...In the end, O'Malley proposes his own candidate for the best name for the period. Yet, this is not his primary goal alone. He wants to show 'the Catholic side' with new eyes so that the complexities of the period, frequently missed, will become apparent...O'Malley's fine study opens new paradigms and persuasively promotes a fresh way of understanding this period of Roman Catholic history.--Donald K. McKim "The Sixteenth Century Journal "From the Publisher:
Counter Reformation, Catholic Reformation, the Baroque Age, the Tridentine Age, the Confessional Age: why does Catholicism in the early modern era go by so many names? and what political situations, what religious and cultural prejudices in the 19th and 20th centuries gave rise to this confusion? Taking up these questions, the author works out a guide to the intellectual and historical developments behind the concepts of Catholic reform, the Counter Reformation, and, in his term, Early Modern Catholicism. The result is the single overview of scholarship on Catholicism in early modern Europe, delivered in a pithy, lucid, and entertaining style. although its subject is fundamental to virtually all other issues relating to 16th and 17th century Europe, there is no other book like this in any language. More than a historiographical review, this book makes a compelling case for subsuming the present confusion of terminology under the concept of Early Modern Catholicism. The term indicates clearly what this book demonstrates: the Early Modern Catholicism was an aspect of early modern history, which is strongly influenced and by which it was itself in large measure determined. As a reviewer commented, O'Malley's discussion of terminology "opens up a different way of conceiving of the whole history of Catholicism between the Reformation and the French Revolution".
