Tridentine Catholicism: Archive


The Weeping Virgin of La Salette – who is so deeply expressive of Tridentine Catholicism …

The Devotion to the Sacred Heart can be considered as the pre-eminent Cult of the era of Tridentine Catholicism.

By this, we mean the era in which the Catholic Church can be most actively seen charting a different course from the trajectory of the Protestant and secular currents transforming the Western world. Tridentine Catholicism has often been derided as having a “siege mentality” against “progress”. Our view is different – this is a Church, which is most acutely aware of the danger of the world falling into ever greater materialistic decadence. In this Archive of Tridentine Catholicism we hope to present writings mainly from the past and out-of-copyright which can illumine this often mocked and misunderstood era. Here is an initial selection:
