Counterreformation in Bohemia, Mo ravia, and Upper and Lower Austria.
To carry the Counterreformation through in Hungary was not in Ferdinand's power, but as time progressed, the peaceable Counterreformation was directed by Cardinal Peter Ptizmany (q.v.), archbishop of Gran, and achieved such results that at all events the ma jority of the nobility again became Roman Catholic.
As concerns the internal affairs of Austria, the vic tory of the Counterreformation was likewise the defeat of the estates and their policy; the princes needed no longer to fear the claims of self-willed estates.

Our task is to reveal the essence of the turning points in 20th century science and to determine at least the general outlines, if not the cause, of the new type of rationality that is replacing the old one.
If the 17th century could be considered the century of the reformation of science, the present century is one of counterreformation in every sense of the word.

 Sacraments and the Mass--Beliefnet.com
There is an extent to which the Church decided to prohibit things such as a vernacular liturgy or Communion under both species, not because they were bad in and of themselves, but precisely because they were reforms that had been advocated -- and adopted -- by the Protestants.
The Counterreformation also imposed on the Church a degree of unity of practice, liturgical and otherwise, that hadn't been there before.
If the Reformation had remained a reform movement *within* the Church, it is possible that we might have had a vernacular liturgy and Communion under both species a few hundred years ago.

The reformation has been followed by a counterreformation that is based on a set of premises that run directly counter for the premises of the reformation.
This literature, like the earlier literature on the reformation and the counterreformation, adopts interest group pluralism as the basis of the administrative process.
Second, the counterreformation has produced changes in the administrative process that cannot be justified as either improving the rationality of regulation or the legitimacy of the process.

To meet the challenges posed by the Protestant movement, the Catholic church instituted a CounterReformation, partly an internal reform of the Catholic church, partly a renewed reliance on the time-tested techniques of fire and sword.
The Council of Trent, meeting in three phases between 1545 and 1563, issued a series of formal statements of Catholic dogma and decrees to reform the worst abuses inside the church.

Although the more celebrated side of Uranus involves progressive revolutionary impulses and humanitarian ideals, the less commendable and more hidden aspect of Uranus can lead to a fervent, unapologetic fundamentalism.
A counterreformation of political and religious fanaticism stood side by side with the liberal and tolerant-minded reforms of the time, with both agendas fueled by Uranus's vision of what constitutes a better world.
Fueled by a pious moralism and an arch-conservative political stance, extreme factions of the religious right rose with tremendous force to counter the mounting tide of forces threatening to traditional family values.

 Felix Stalder: Internet Backlash   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
The advent of the Internet has often been likened to the spread of the printing press and its democratization of knowledge.
Comparable to the indices of banned books created by the Catholic church in an attempt to maintain its monopoly, we see now the banning of technologies and the persecution of their creators but because they threaten the status quo of traditionally dominant institutions.
As the first counterreformation was unsuccessful in preventing new knowledge from spreading and so will this one be unable to maintain the status quo through repression.

 Dialnet: El antiutopismo en Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda
In this essay we problematize the traditional critical view of Persiles as a Christian romance inspired by the principles of the Counterreformation Instead, we propose an interpretation of the novel as an ¿allegory of cultural difference,¿ and also as a startling critique of Counterreformation and imperial utopias.
We argue that Cervantes¿s use of the allegorical form is aligned with a mannerist aesthetic broadly understood as the experimentation with multiple and unstable points of view and a rejection of mimetic illusionism.
Also, while the basic story line of Persiles is built on a striking perversion of the peregrination motif, Cervantes¿s exploration of religious and cultural syncretism, his portrayal of Spain and especially Rome as sites of meaningless violence, and his poignant use of irony reinforce the novel¿s critique of Counterreformation ideology.

 Mots Pluriels Roger Clarke
The second section of the paper explores the counterreformation that has been stimulated by the exercise of those freedoms.
Governments, both in relatively free and relatively un-free countries, together with major corporations whose profits are dependent on copyright, have all perceived the need to take action against the excess of freedoms wrought by the Internet.
Such technology would lie between anonymity (and its scope for accountability to be undermined by the absence of any means of applying retribution to guilty parties), and ubiquitous identification (which renders everyone's behaviour subject to transparency, and people's locations subject to real-time discovery, resulting in the chilling of nonconformist behaviour).

In effect, it is an offer to replace justice with "just trust us." This "bargain" appears too close at hand for comfort.
Yet recently, there has been a judicial awakening, a dawning recognition that class actions were not the sole remaining barrier to utopia and that class action reform may have been "carried to an excess, that itself will need reforming." (13) The counterreformation has begun.
First is the path of least resistance, utilizing alternatives to traditional, formal class certification to accomplish at least some of its aggregative and preclusive advantages.

Rose reveals that Cardinal Ratzinger, unquestionably John Paul II's closest collaborator, was privately critical of certain ecumenical, liturgical, and administrative policies of the late pope.
