The Council of Trent was initially called to counter the Protestant Revolt by unambiguously affirming the distinctive truths of the Catholic faith. To disseminate these truths, the Council of Trent commanded a Catechism to be written. Composed under the supervision of St. Charles Borromeo and promulgated by St. Pope St. Pius V, its value as an authoritative exposition of the Catholic faith has only increased through the centuries.

While the catechism was originally intended for priests to use alongside the Sacred Scriptures in defending the faith, its straightforward and logical explanation of Catholic doctrinal and moral teachings has made it a useful reference and guide for the laity more than 400 years after it was first published. Today, it continues to enlighten souls who seek to discern between true and false teachings.

This edition is the definitive translation of the Catechism of the Council of Trent from the original Latin. The catechism covers four main area: the Articles of Faith, the Seven Sacraments, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer. However, in addition to this there are also appendices on the Immaculate Conception, Papal Infallibility, Christian Marriage and on Frequent and Daily Communion.

Editorial Reviews

"The Roman Catechism has for more than four centuries been the single most authoritative one-volume, carefully organized, easily readable, and clearly expressed synthesis of Roman Catholicism."  – Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.

"That golden book known as the Catechism of the Council of Trent, or Roman Catechism … Noted both for the abundance and accuracy of its teaching and for elegance of style, this catechism is a precious summary of the whole of theology, dogmatic and moral."  – Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Depuis Le Jour.
