A Venetian diplomat, who late in life was made a cardinal by Pope Paul III, Gasparo Contarini favored mild policies aimed at reconciling dissident Protestants with the Catholic Church. At the Colloquy of Regensburg in 1541, Contarini supported the doctrine of double justification (or double justice), which was later rejected by the Council of Trent. Contarini believed this doctrine to be an acceptable compromise formulation that attempted to preserve the best of traditional Catholic teaching concerning grace in combination with the most persuasive elements of the Protestant doctrine of justification by faith alone.
