John W. O'Malley is University Professor at Georgetown University.


In this important study, O'Malley does what his Jesuit forebears so often did--he engages in creative dialogue with approaches which, though imperfect, are likely to stay around. -- Alison Shell Times Literary Supplement [This book is] a remarkably thorough overview of how historians have sought to make sense of the way the Catholic Church responded to one of the most complex periods of her history...O'Malley brings together a vast amount of scholarship to show how the Church reacted not simply to the Protestant Reformation, but also to the other new challenges she faced in an age that witnessed both the rise of the nation state and the creation of vast imperial structures that by way of conquest carried the message of Christianity throughout the world. -- David J. Levy Catholic Herald This is a unique book focusing on an interesting issue. Roman Catholicism in the early modern age has been designated by a variety of names: Counter-Reformation, Catholic Reformation, the Baroque Age, the Tridentine Age, and the Confessional Age. Why? What contexts and presuppositions in the last two centuries have led to this multiplicity? O'Malley is a leading authority and provides here the most significant and well-documented overview of this issue and its scholarship...In the end, O'Malley proposes his own candidate for the best name for the period. Yet, this is not his primary goal alone. He wants to show 'the Catholic side' with new eyes so that the complexities of the period, frequently missed, will become apparent...O'Malley's fine study opens new paradigms and persuasively promotes a fresh way of understanding this period of Roman Catholic history. -- Donald K. McKim The Sixteenth Century Journal
