Few explicit references regarding moral theology can be found in the documents of either the Council of Trent or the Second Vatican Council. Still, moral theology before and after the two councils went through extraordinary changes regarding method, its standard of authority, and its understanding of moral truth. This chapter is divided into two sections. First, it explores two major works, one thirty years before and the other thirty years after the Council of Trent. Second, it examines developments before and after Vatican II.
