Abstract:

In this article I discuss the concept of “Counter-Reform” in its genesis in the field of the church history and its implications for the study of developments and tendencies in the 16th century Catholicism. Considering its counter-semantics I ponder the interpretative possibilities of two alternative concepts, applied to the description of 16th century Catholicism: “Catholic Reform” and “Early Modern Catholicism”. This two concepts appear to be more appropriate for an analysis of the part, played by Catholicism in the general process of early modern social disciplining. As a representative example of this participation are considered the activities of the Jesuits which demonstrate the modernizing potential of the “Counter-Reform”.
