compare and contrast Catholic efforts for reform to the Protestant movement.
Think about the ways the Catholic efforts for reform compare and contrast to the Protestant movement. Consider whether the changes in the Roman Catholic Church were primarily a result of the Protestant threat to church unity, or rather, if these changes were bound to occur with or without the movement started by Luther. Also, consider the impact of the Council of Trent on the Roman Catholic Church. Do you think the movement that occurred in the Roman Catholic church of the sixteenth century should be called a “Counter Reformation” or a “Catholic Reformation?” Explain.
