TRENT by John W. O’Malley (Belknap/Harvard, 27.95)

Before Vatican’s 1 and 2, way before, there was The Council of Trent (1545-1563). Trent? Not Rome? Blame it on politics, not surprisingly. And, Trent, a good distance away from Rome, was not an auspicious choice: a small town with few resources, hardly enough rooms to house Cardinals and terrible food. Further, it took three sessions over 18 years under three different popes, none of whom attended. Its main accomplishment was to provide a counter to the Protestant reformation.



CANON LAW EXPLAINED By MSGR. LAURENCE J. SPITERI, JCD, PHD (Sophia Press, $19.95)

This is a book for lay Catholics and for non-Catholics curious about “the origins and meanings of canons (laws) that lay out the Church’s official governing procedures for matters as various as abbots and annulments, scandals and Sacraments, and more.”  The “Code of Canon Law” (contains over 1,752 rules – and who has time to search them all?) The layout and simple explanations offered by author Spiteri makes understanding them a breeze.
