Summary By providing precise and accurate examples placed and scrutinized in their historical context, Art and Faith in Tridentine Spain (1545-1690) explains how painting, sculpture, and sacred space were able to convey and accomplish the dogmatic decisions and the spiritual message of the Council of Trent. Beyond the Decree on the Holy Images, it is to the letter and to the spirit of all dogmatic Canons that post-Council art refers.
From the 1500s to the 1680s Counter-Reformist art became a valuable and effective arm of the Church of Rome.
