With the conference "Trent and its Impact" on November 7th & 8th, 2013, Georgetown University will celebrate the 450th anniversary of the closing of the Council of Trent on December 4, 1563. The conference includes scholarly talks and musical presentations. Talks will be delivered by international specialists. Opening remarks will be made by Prof. John O'Malley, SJ. The foreseen audience is broad in scope. Attendance is free, but registration is requested. The council was both an answer to the Reformation and an attempt to reform the church. It had an extraordinarily troubled history that extended over eighteen years and that involved emperors, kings and queens, and five popes. Directly and indirectly the council had an immense impact not only on the church but on almost every aspect of culture. Its successful conclusion marked the beginning, therefore, of what is often referred to as the Tridentine Era in Catholicism—an era that lasted until the mid-twentieth century with the Vatican Council II.
