M. L'Abbé Chanut - Le Saint Concile De Trente Œcuménique Et Général, Célébré Sous Paul III, Jules III Et Pie IV - 1690

Beautiful complete edition - One of the main sources, in French, on the Council of Trent in the translation of the abbot Martial Chanut, chaplain of Anne of Austria -

Presence of 3 portraits engraved on wood: Paul III, Jules III, and Pius IV -

This French translation remains the reference of the acts of the Council, quickly recognized as such: "translation esteemed because the purity of the language to which Martial Chanut attached himself did not make him move away from the rules of an exact translation" ( A. Baillet, 'Jugemens des Savans', 1722, III, p. 175) -

Convened by Pope Paul III on May 22, 1542, in response to requests made by Luther and Calvin within the framework of the Protestant reform, the Council of Trent began on December 13, 1545 and ended on December 4, 1563. It is the one of the most important councils in the history of Catholicism -
