JURIEU, PIERRE, (1637-1713.)
The History of the Council of Trent. : In Eight Books. Whereunto Is Prefixt a Discourse Containing Historical Reflexions on Councils
. and particularly on the conduct of the Council of Trent, proving that the Protestants are not obliged to submit thereto / written in French by Peter Jurieu, Doctour and Professour of Divinity.And now done into English. Printed by J. Heptinstall, for Henry Faithorne and John Kersey, and Edward Evets, 1684, CXX, 608pp. frontispiece title page page I headed by: Historical Reflections ON COUNCILS; And particularly on the Council of TRENT: PROVING That Protestants are not Obliged to submit thereto. Page 1 is headed by: THE HISTORY OF THE Council of TRENT. Deals with LEO. X. ADRIAN. VI. CLEM. VII. PAUL. III. PAUL III. PAUL III. JULIUS III. JULIUS III. JULIUS III. MARCEL II. PAUL IV. PIUS IV. PIUS IV. PIUS IV. PIUS IV. ERRATA. A TABLE of the most remarkable matters contained in this History. Translation of Abrégé de l'histoire du concile de Trente.
¶ The Council of Trent played an important part in determining the outcome of the Counter-Reformation. Along with the part played by the Jesuits and certain individuals, the Council of Trent was a central feature of the Counter-Reformation. But whether Trent represented a positive move by the Catholic Church remains contentious. Any long term change in the Catholic Church depended on the attitude of the pope in power at one particular time. If there was no desire for change, then there would be no change! Julius III (1550 to 1555) showed little interest in reform. There were those popes who were the opposite and were truly interested in moving forward the Catholic Church such as Sixtus V (1585 to 1590). The Council of Trent was called by Paul Ill who was pope from 1534 to 1549 and it first sat in December 1545. It was finally disbanded in 1563 but though it would appear to have a life span of 18 years, it was only engaged in talks for four and a half years. Most of the popes at this time did not want to lose power and "they did not feel any enthusiasm for the abolition of abuses which were lucrative for the Papacy." (Cowie) The pope did not attend the meetings of the Council and he took no formal part in it. But his legates ensured that the pope's views would always be put forward and this meant that there was no danger in the revival of conciliarism (the Council being superior to the pope). 700 bishops could have attended the Council but to start with only 31 turned up along with 50 theologians. By 1563, a total of 270 bishops attended and the vast majority of them were Italian which was a great bonus for the pope as they were under his control and it was the pope who effectively controlled promotion to cardinal etc. and these men would not be seen in public doing anything other than what the pope wanted. The bishops also insisted that they vote as individuals rather than as a block-country vote and as there were 187 Italian bishops, 32 Spanish, 28 French and 2 German the Italians vastly outnumbered the other three countries put together! As such what was to be passed at Trent was what the pope accepted as being acceptable to him. The Council had been called to examine doctrine and reform. Charles V had wanted abuses looked at first in an attempt to please the Protestants and hopefully tempt them back to the church. Once they were back they could look at doctrine. Paul III did not want this as reforms could financially damage him and concessions could diminish his authority. The result was that two separate sections dealt with reform and doctrine simultaneously. The Council of Trent (Latin: Concilium Tridentinum) was the 16th-century Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church. It is considered to be one of the Church's most important[1] councils. It convened in Trent (then capital of the Prince-Bishopric of Trent, in the Holy Roman Empire, now in modern Italy) between December 13, 1545, and December 4, 1563 in twenty-five sessions for three periods. Council fathers met for the first through eighth sessions in Trent (1545-7), and for the ninth through eleventh sessions in Bologna (1547) during the pontificate of Pope Paul III.[2] Under Pope Julius III, the council met in Trent (1551-52) for the twelfth through sixteenth sessions. Under Pope Pius IV, the seventeenth through twenty-fifth sessions took place in Trent (1559-63). The council issued condemnations on what it defined as Protestant heresies and defined Church teachings in the areas of Scripture and Tradition, Original Sin, Justification, Sacraments, the Eucharist in Holy Mass and the veneration of saints. It issued numerous reform decrees.[3] By specifying Catholic doctrine on salvation, the sacraments, and the Biblical canon, the Council was answering Protestant disputes.[1] The Council entrusted to the Pope the implementation of its work; as a result, Pope Pius IV issued the Tridentine Creed in 1565; and Pope Pius V issued in 1566 the Roman Catechism, in 1568 a revised Roman Breviary, and in 1570 a revised Roman Missal, thus initiating what since the 20th century has been called the Tridentine Mass (from the city's Latin name Tridentum), and Pope Clement VIII issued in 1592 a revised edition of the Vulgate.[4] The Council of Trent, delayed and interrupted several times because of political or religious disagreements, was a major reform council and the most impressive embodiment of the ideals of the Counter-Reformation.[4] It would be over 300 years until the next Ecumenical Council. When announcing Vatican II, Pope John XXIII stated that the precepts of the Council of Trent continue to the modern day, a position that was reaffirmed by Pope Paul VI.[5] in full rather worn and damaged original calf no front end papers, some marginal; worm holing , staining to edges of some pages,[ DR 5 ].

PINTER HAROLD AS HAROLD PINTA
Poetry London Volume 6 Number 22 Summer 1951
. London: Editions Poetry, 1951. 40pp. 3 illustrations. Dark green stapled wrappers. Edited by Richard March and Nicholas Moore. Very good copy. Includes the poem "One a Story, Two a Death," which is the third published appearance by Harold Pinter, credited here as Harold Pinta. Other contributors include Herbert Read, Osbert Sitwell, Roy Campbell, D.G. Bridson, William Jay Smith, James Reeves, and Ronald Bottral, and others.
¶ Pinter believed an aunt's erroneous view that the family was Sephardic and had fled the Spanish Inquisition; thus, for his early poems, Pinter used the pseudonym Pinta and at other times used variations such as da Pinto. Later research by Lady Antonia Fraser, Pinter's second wife, revealed the legend to be apocryphal; three of Pinter's grandparents came from Poland and the fourth from Odessa, so the family was Ashkenazic.
