Encyclopedia > Tridentine Rite

Tridentine Rite refers to the liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church as promulgated by the Council of Trent (December 13, 1545 till December 4, 1563). The Council was convoked to formulate the doctrines, the spirituality and the liturgies of the Roman Catholic Church in response to the Protestant Reformation. The rites of the Council of Trent were found in liturgical books such as the Breviary, the Ritual, the Antiphonal, the Gradual, the Missal and the Pontifical. This is the rite that was in use in the Roman Catholic Church prior to the reforms of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council.
