The Council of Trent convened on December 13, 1545 by order of Pope Paul III to issue a definitive declaration of the Doctrines of the Church in answer to the Protestant heresies and to reform the Church by removing the abuses that had developed in it. The council defended and clarified fundamental truths of Christianity including: the authority of the Bible, original sin, the Mass and the Sacraments. The Council concluded in 1563 under Pope Pius IV.
