- Jill Raitt, University of Missouri

" impressive and useful work of scholarship."

Book Description

The second edition of The World of Catholic Renewal offers an updated synthesis of the vast scholarship on the history of Catholicism from the middle of the sixteenth century to the eighteenth century. Professor Hsia discusses the doctrinal and ecclesiastical renewal after Trent. Encompassing art and architecture, he attempts to understand Catholic renewal as a vast historical development that shaped European civilization and explores its expansion and encounter with non-Christian cultures in America, Africa, and Asia. The new edition offers an additional chapter on The Catholic Book and updated bibliography.
