"[A] superb new history of the Council of Trent[...] this book allows us to climb out of the confessional slit-trenches which made the story of Trent seem one dimensional. [...] Thanks to John O'Malley, we have a beautifully clear and honest reappraisal of the tangled story of Trent, in all it complexity, paradox, achievement and lost opportunity. --Diarmaid MacCulloch, London Review of Books, 9/05/2013
