Cavagnis (Instit. As many as 36 collections of canon law are known to have been brought into existence before 1150. The structure that the fully developed Roman Law provides is a contribution to the Canon Law. The influence of this collection, in the form it assumed about the middle of the ninth century, when the False Decretals were inserted into it, was very great. Thus understood, the public ecclesiastical law would be derived almost exclusively from Divine and natural law. It includes a selection of papal constitutions, from Sixtus IV to Sixtus V (1471-1590), but not the decrees of the Council of Trent. V. Codification. The plan of the “Institutiones”, in imitation of Lancelotti (Perugia, 1563), has been followed by very many canonists, among whom the principal are: the learned Antonio Agustin, Archbishop of Tarragona, “Epitome juris pontificii veteris” (Tarragona, 1587); his “De emendation Gratiani dialogorum libri duo” (Tarragona, 1587), is worthy of mention; Claude Fleury, “Institution au droit ecclesiastique” (Paris, 1676); Zeger Bernard van Espen, “Jus ecclesiasticum universum” (Cologne, 1748); the Benedictine Dominic Schram, “Institutiones juris ecclesiastici” (Augsburg, 1774); Vincenzo Lupoli, “Juris ecclesiastici praelectiones” (Naples, 1777); Giovanni Devoti, titular Archbishop of Carthage, “Institutionum canonicarum libri quatuor” (Rome, 1785); his “Commentary on the Decretals” has only the first three books (Rome, 1803); Cardinal Soglia, “Institutiones juris private et publici ecclesiastici” (Paris, 1859) and “Institutiones juris publici”, (Loreto, 1843); D. Craisson, Vicar-General of Valence, “Manuale compendium totius juris canonici” (Poitiers, 1861). Can. Canon Law as a Science. I. The School of Bologna had just revived the study of Roman law; Gratian sought to inaugurate a similar study of canon law. [50] The Catholic Church developed the inquisitorial system in the Middle Ages. (2) If we consider the form in which it is found, we have the written law (jus scripturn) comprising the laws promulgated by the competent authorities, and the unwritten law (jus non scriptum), or even customary law, resulting from practice and custom; the latter however became less important as the written law developed. At an early period we meet with expressions referring to the body of ecclesiastical legislation then in process of formation: canones, ordo canonicus, sanctio canonica; but the expression “canon law” (jus canonicum) becomes current only about the beginning of the twelfth century, being used in contrast with the “civil law” (jus civile), and later we have the “Corpus juris canonici”, as we have the “Corpus juris civiis”. outside of, or extraneous to, the official collections. Modern Catholic canon law is "codified", that is, it is contained within (presently) two "codes", one for the Roman Church (1983) and one for all the Eastern Churches (1990). 1) a law is a reasonable ordinance for the common good, promulgated by the head of the community. Hergenroether (Freiburg-im-B., 1888); J. Hollweck (Freiburg-im-B., 1905); J. Laurentius (Freiburg-im-B., 1903); D. M. Prummer, 1907; J. The most important of these documents, the “Apostolic Constitutions“, was removed by the Second Canon of the Council in Trullo (692), as having been interpolated by the heretics. Quite as the professors at Bologna commented on Justinian’s “Corpus juris civilis”, so they began at once to comment on Gratian’s work, the personal element as well as his texts. [14] The term ius ecclesiasticum, by contrast, referred to the secular law, whether imperial, royal, or feudal, that dealt with relations between the state and the Catholic Church. The compilations known as the “Nomocanons” are more important, because they bring together the civil laws and the ecclesiastical laws on the same subjects; the two principal are the Nomocanon, wrongly attributed to John the Scholastic, but which dates from the end of the sixth century, with fifty titles; and another, drawn up in the seventh century, and afterwards augmented by the Patriarch Photius in 883. At first the authors of these collections contented themselves with bringing together the canons of the different councils in chronological order; consequently these are called “chronological” collections; in the West, the last important chronological collection is that of Pseudo-Isidore. 3, Black's Law Dictionary, 5th Edition, pg. B. Philosophy, theology, and fundamental theory of canon law. First, Second, and Third Cycle First Cycle. Canon law is also called “ecclesiastical law” (jus ecclesiasticum); however, strictly speaking, there is a slight difference of meaning between the two expressions: canon law denotes in particular the law of the “Corpus Juris”, including the regulations borrowed from Roman law; whereas ecclesiastical law refers to all laws made by the ecclesiastical authorities as such, including those made after the … (3) The voluminous compilation, in twenty books, of Burchard, Bishop of Worms, compiled between 1012 and 1022, entitled the “Collectarium“, also “Decretum”, a manual for the use of ecclesiastics in their ministry; the nineteenth book, “Corrector” or “Medicus”, treats of the administration of the Sacrament of Penance, and was often current as a distinct work. [29] The first truly systematic collection was assembled by the Camaldolese monk Gratian in the 11th century, commonly known as the Decretum Gratiani ("Gratian's Decree") but originally called The Concordance of Discordant Canons[30] (Concordantia Discordantium Canonum). _____. On this positive Divine law depend the essential principles of the Church‘s constitution, the primacy, the episcopacy, the essential elements of Divine worship and the Sacraments, the indissolubility of marriage, etc. This is not difficult when one has exact and recent texts, drawn up as abstract laws, e.g. The School of Canon Law serves the Catholic Church with a strong focus on the needs and opportunities of the Church in the United States. (6) The “Breviarium” of Cardinal Atto; edited by Mai, “Script. V, tit. Like the preceding codification, it applies to Roman Catholics of the Latin Church.[41]. A violation of the moral law or what one’s conscience judges to be the moral law is a sin; a violation of the exterior penal law, in addition to the sin, renders one liable to a punishment or penalty; if the will of the legislator is only to oblige the offender to submit to the penalty, the law is said to be “purely penal”; such are some of the laws adopted by civil legislatures, and it is generally admitted that some ecclesiastical laws are of this kind. Thus joined together these two collections became the canonical code of the Roman Church, not by official approbation, but by authorized practice. It must be remembered that the Church existed for a long time before having a complete and coordinated system of law; that many daily acts of its administration, while objectively canonical, were of the same nature as similar acts in civil matters, e.g. For very remote countries even a … Historical Development of Texts and Collections. The word adopted is here used to point out the fact that there are certain elements in canon law borrowed by the Church from civil law or from the writings of private individuals, who as such had no authority in ecclesiastical society. Unity of legislation, in as far as it can be expected at that period, is identical with a certain uniformity of practice, based on the prescriptions of Divine law relative to the constitution of the Church, the liturgy, the sacraments, etc. A detailed account of each of the canonical collections is here out of place; the more important ones are the subject of special articles, to which we refer the reader; it will suffice if we exhibit the different stages in the development of these texts and collections, and make clear the movement towards centralization and unification that has led up to the present situation. It is sometimes referred to as the ius codicis ("law of the code") or, in comparison with all law before it, the ius novum ("new law"). In the Latin or Western Church, the governing code is the 1983 Code of Canon Law, a revision of the 1917 Code of Canon Law. The concessions granted to them are generally subject to a certain measure of control. [24][27], The spurious conciliar canons and papal decrees were gathered together into collections, both unofficial and official. For those who do not possess an advanced degree in theology or who have had no previous training in philosophy, 24 graduate credits in theology (8 courses or two semesters) are required, covering (in general) dogmatic theology, ecclesiology, sacramental theology, and moral theology. The latter, be gun as early as the council of 633 and increased by mil canons of subsequent councils, is known as the “Hispana” or “Isidoriana”, because in later times it was attributed (erroneously) to St. Isidore of Seville. [57], Although canonical jurisprudential theory generally follows the principles of Aristotelian-Thomistic legal philosophy,[4] Thomas Aquinas never explicitly discusses the place of canon law in his Treatise on Law[58] However, Aquinas himself was influenced by canon law. He did not wish to suppress or supplant the “Decretum” of Gratian, but this eventually occurred. The general idea of the future Code includes (after the preliminary section) four main divisions: persons, things (with subdivisions for the sacraments, sacred places and objects, etc. Carlos José Errázuriz contends that "in a certain sense, all postconciliar canonical scholarship has shown a theological concern in the widest sense, that is, a tendency to determine more clearly the place of the juridical in the mystery of the Church. The canons of the ecumenical councils, especially those of Trent (see General Councils) hold an exceptional place in ecclesiastical law. in VI °). Those who are versed and skilled in canon law, and professors of canon law, are called canonists[11][12] (or colloquially, canon lawyers[11]). Canon law greatly increased from 1140 to 1234. In the thirteenth century, the Roman Church began to collect and organize its canon law, which after a millennium of development had become a complex and difficult system of interpretation and cross-referencing. General laws, therefore, bind all Catholics wherever they may be. The clergy, organized everywhere in the same way, exercised almost everywhere the same functions. Pope John Paul II promulgated the Code of Canon Law (for the Latin Catholic Church) in 1983, and the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches (for the several Eastern Catholic Churches) in 1990. In the fourth century it was applied to the ordinances of the councils, and thus contrasted with the word nomoi, the ordinances of the civil authorities; the compound word “Nomocanon” was given to those collections of regulations in which the laws formulated by the two authorities on ecclesiastical matters were to be found side by side. This was the last of the medieval official collections. [63] Fundamental theory is a newer discipline that takes as is object "the existence and nature of what is juridical in the Church of Jesus Christ. Ecclesiastical positive law is the positive law that emanates from the legislative power of the Catholic Church in its effort to govern its members in accordance with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. [73], Texts and translations of post-1917 canonical codifications, Black's Law Dictionary, 5th Edition, pg. The actual law is found in the works of the canonists rather than in any specific collection; each one gathers his texts where he can; there is no one general collection sufficient for the purpose. Canon law likewise lays out the rights and obligations we have members of the Church. Canon law is the body of laws and regulations made by or adopted by ecclesiastical authority, for the government of the Christian organization and its members. The former, executed at the request of Stephen, Bishop of Salona, is a translation of the Greek councils, including Chalcedon, and begins with the fifty Apostolic canons; Dionysius adds to it only the Latin text of the canons of Sardica and of Carthage (419), in which the more ancient African councils are partially reproduced. The name “capitula” or “capitularia” is given also to the episcopal ordinances quite common in the ninth century. The Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches, as it is called, differs from the Latin 1983 Code of Canon Law in matters where Eastern and Latin traditions diverge, such as terminology, discipline concerning hierarchical offices, and administration of the sacraments. In the first year of his pontificate he issued the Motu Proprio “Arduum”, (De Ecclesii e legibus in unum redigendis); it treats of the complete codification and reformation of canon law. The primary canonical sources of law are the 1983 Code of Canon Law,[18][54] the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches,[54] and Pastor Bonus. From this one can appreciate the utility as well as the difficulty of the codification undertaken by Pius X. V. CODIFICATION.—The method followed, both by private individuals and the popes, in drawing up canonical collections is rather that of a coordinated compilation or juxtaposition of documents than codification in the modern sense of the word, i.e. nuns.”, X, i, V, tit. Juridical, historical, and above all theological sciences are most useful for the comprehensive study of canon law. Apostolorum”, the “Testament of the Lord” and the `.` Octateuch of Clement”; lastly the “Apostolic Canons“. And in a very recent case in the Supreme Court of the United States, the case of Coffin, 156 U. S. 432, it is pointed out that this presumption was fully established in the Roman law, and was preserved in the canon law.[53]. The plans of the various titles have been confided to canonists in every country. 1331 - 1340) chapter i. censures; chapter ii. Other sources of law are rather impersonal in their nature, chief among them being custom or the unwritten law. The commentators of the Decretals were known as Decretalists. VII. [59] While many canonists apply the Thomistic definition of law (lex) to canon law without objection, some authors dispute the applicability of the Thomistic definition to canon law, arguing that its application would impoverish ecclesiology and corrupt the very supernatural end of canon law. vet. Later, the pontifical laws are promulgated more usually as constitutions, Apostolic Letters, the latter being classified as Bulls or Briefs, according to their external form, or even as spontaneous acts, “Motu proprio”. When authors speak of the “closing” of the “Corpus Juris”, they do not mean an act of the popes forbidding canonists to collect new documents, much less forbidding themselves to add to the ancient collections. Some comments about canon law can be rather negative. These and several other recent documents were, moreover, drawn up in short precise articles, to a certain extent a novelty, and the beginning of a. codification. When work finally began, almost two decades of study and discussion on drafts of the various sections were needed before Pope John Paul II could promulgate the revised edition, which came into force on 27 November 1983,[39] having been promulgated via the apostolic constitution Sacrae Disciplinae Leges of 25 January 1983. But there may be legal forms of publication, requisite and necessary, and in this consists the promulgation properly so called (see Promulgation). [55] Other sources include apostolic constitutions, motibus propriis, particular law, and—with the approbation of the competent legislator—custom. Again, to attain its sublime end, the Church, endowed by its Founder with legislative power, makes laws in conformity with natural and Divine law. 1832. The canon law of the Eastern Catholic Churches, which had developed some different disciplines and practices, underwent its own process of codification, resulting in the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches promulgated in 1990 by Pope John Paul II. Several Roman Congregations have also had their acts collected in official publications; but these are rather erudite compilations or repertories. Towards the end of the fourth century there is yet in the West no canonical collection, not even a local one, those of the fifth century are essentially local, but all of them borrow from the Greek councils. And it means not knowing that, in too many cases, important ecclesiastical rights and obligations might be going unrecognized in our lives. [18] Fernando della Rocca used the term "ecclesiastical-positive law" in contradistinction to civil-positive law, in order to differentiate between the human legislators of church and state, all of which issue "positive law" in the normal sense. At first appear collections of national or local laws, and the tendency towards centralization is partially effected in the ninth century. The sources or authors of this positive ecclesiastical law are essentially the episcopate and its head, the pope, the successors of the Apostolic College and its divinely appointed head, Saint Peter. a rule or practical direction (not to speak of the other meanings of the word, s… Under the 1983 Code of Canon Law, all seminary students are required to take courses in canon law. ), as it concerns holy things, and has for its object the wellbeing of souls in the society divinely established by Jesus Christ. For the purpose of further studies the pope had it printed in 1598: the pontifical constitutions and the decrees of the Council of Trent were inserted in it in the order of the Decretals. Canon law - Canon law - History: The early church was not organized in any centralized structure. But the canonical movement, so active after Gratian’s time, has ceased forever. I, pg. Growing up Catholic, on the other hand, means growing up with almost no appreciation of how extensively canon law, the internal legal system of the Catholic Church, affects our daily life of faith. This division is explained in two different ways by the different schools of writers: for most of the adherents of the Roman school, e.g. The science of canon law, i.e. The Province of Pontus furnished the penitentiary decisions of Ancyra and Neocaesarea (314); Antioch, the canons of the famous Council “in encaeniis” (341), a genuine code of metropolitan organization; Paphlagonia, that of the Council of Gangra (343), a reaction against the first excesses of asceticism; Phrygia, the fifty-nine canons of Laodicea on different disciplinary and liturgical matters. A law can also cease when its purpose and end cease, or even when it is too difficult to be observed by the generality of the subjects; it then falls into desuetude (see Custom). In the Early Church, the first canons were decreed by bishops united in "Ecumenical" councils (the Emperor summoning all of the known world's bishops to attend with at least the acknowledgement of the Bishop of Rome) or "local" councils (bishops of a region or territory). Other Roman laws were the object of a more positive recognition than mere usage, i.e. The pope wished to collect in a more uniform and convenient manner the decretals scattered through so many different compilations; he entrusted this synopsis to his chaplain Raymund of Pennafort, and in 1234 sent it officially to the universities of Bologna and Paris. This is actually not the case. This collection, often called the “Dionysio-Hadriana”, was soon officially received in all Frankish territory, where it was cited as the “Liber Canonum”, and was adopted for the whole empire of Charlemagne at the Diet of Aachen in 802. ), (Latin, updated with post-promulgation legislative revisions. Parents and those who take their place are bound by the obligation and possess the right of educating their offspring. Indults or the powers that the bishops of the Catholic world receive from the Holy See, to regulate the various cases that may arise in the administration of their dioceses, belong to the category of privileges; together with the dispensations granted directly by the Holy See, they eliminate any excessive rigidity of the law, and ensure to ecclesiastical legislation a marvelous facility of application. They begin with the “Compilatio tertia’ of Innocent III; the later collections of the “Corpus Juris”, except the “Extravagantes“, are official. Since the “closing” of the “Corpus Juris” two attempts have been made; the first was of little use, not being official; the second, was official, but was not brought to a successful issue. On the other hand, in too many seminaries the teaching of ecclesiastical law is not sufficiently distinguished from that of moral theology. It is not a case of confusion, but of isolation and dispersion. Those we have mentioned as commentators of the ancient canonical collections are now of interest only from an historical point of view; but the authors who have written since the Council of Trent are still read with profit; it is in their great works that we find our practical canon law. Only Pope Francis can change the Code of Canon Law, so if you're not happy with what the law says, please take it … II. Before Gratian there was no "jurisprudence of canon law" (system of legal interpretation and principles). (4) Public law is divided into external law (jus externum) and internal law (jus internum). Two later compilations included in the “Corpus Juris” are private works, the “Extravagantes of John XXII”, arranged in 1325 by Zenzelin de Cassanis, who glossed them, and the “Extravagantes communes”, a belated collection; it was only in the edition of the “Corpus Juris” by Jean Chappuis, in 1500, that these collections found a fixed form. Howe, William Wirt. As we have seen so often in this space, canon law follows theology—and in this situation, canon law is merely following Catholic theology regarding the indissolubility of marriage. eccl., Rome, 1906, I, 8), public law is the law of the Church as a perfect society, and even as a perfect’ society such as it has been established by its Divine founder: private law would therefore embrace all the regulations of the ecclesiastical authorities concerning the internal organization of that society, the functions of its ministers, the rights and duties of its members. In the Catholic Church, canon law is the system of laws and legal principles made and enforced by the Church's hierarchical authorities to regulate its external organization and government and to order and direct the activities of Catholics toward the mission of the Church. B. Luca (d. 1683), whose immense “Theatrum veritatis” and “Relatio curiae romance” are his most important works; Pignatelli, who has touched on all practical questions in his “Consultations canonicae”, 11 folio volumes, Geneva, 1668; Prospero Lambertini (Pope Benedict XIV), perhaps the greatest canonist since the Council of Trent (q.v. III. His object, however, was to build up a juridical system from all these documents. We have now to consider all these laws in their common abstract element, in other words Ecclesiastical Law, its characteristics and its practice. (An abridged edition of this “Liber Septimus” of Clement VIII was published by M. Sentis, Freiburg, 1870.) Gratian’s “Decretum” was a wonderful work; welcorned, taught and glossed by the decretists at Bologna and later in the other schools and universities, it was for a long time the text-book of canon law. Finally, considered chronologically, the sources and collections are classified as previous to or later than the “Corpus Juris”. It is impossible to enumerate the special treatises. We may liken to bishops in this matter various bodies that have the right of governing themselves and thus enjoy a certain autonomy; such are prelates with territorial jurisdiction, religious orders, some exempt chapters and universities, etc. The canonical collections were fairly numerous, but none was generally accepted. It will suffice to mention the two “systematic” collections of Fulgentius Ferrandus and Cresconius (q.v.). Catholic Canon Law (1896) Ecclesiastical Vestments: Their Development & History. ); lastly the decrees, decisions, and various acts of the Roman Congregations, jurisprudence rather than law properly so called. [51] The canonists introduced into post-Roman Europe the concept of a higher law of ultimate justice, over and above the momentary law of the state. A law must be promulgated for it to have legal effect. (7) Finally, if we look to the history or chronological evolution of canon law, we find three epochs: from the beginning to the “Decretum” of Gratian exclusively; from Gratian to the Council of Trent; from the Council of Trent to our day. ), Matrimonial nullity trial reforms of Pope Francis, Ordinariate for Eastern Catholic faithful, Ranking of liturgical days in the Roman Rite, Note on the importance of the internal forum and the inviolability of the Sacramental Seal, Matrimonial Nullity Trial Reforms of Pope Francis, Formal act of defection from the Catholic Church, List of excommunicable offences in the Catholic Church, List of people excommunicated by the Catholic Church, Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Beatification and canonization process in 1914, Canonical erection of a house of religious, Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, philosophy, theology, and fundamental theory of canon law, Jurisprudence of canon law § Sources of law, Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina, Pontifical Faculty of Theology of Our Lady of the Assumption, St. Peter's Pontifical Institute of Theology, Pontifical and Royal University of Santo Tomas, Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (, John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw, Valencia Catholic University Saint Vincent Martyr, "A Catechist's Introduction to Canon Law", St. Joseph Foundation newsletter, Vol. For Eastern Catholics two sections of Oriental canon law had already, under Pope Pius XII, been put in the form of short canons. If to these be added the canons of the two ecumenical councils of Nicea (787) and Constantinople (869) we have all the elements of the definitive collection in its final shape. contracts, obligations, and in general the administration of property; it was quite natural for the Church to accommodate itself in these matters to the existing laws, without positively approving of them. A violation of the law, either by omission of by act, is punishable with a Penalty (q.v.). After his time the texts were arranged according to subject matter; these are the “systematic” collections, the only form in use since the time of Pseudo-Isidore. Without imperiling the rights and prerogatives of the legislator, but on the contrary strengthening them, indults impress more strongly on the law of the Church that humane, broad, merciful character, mindful of the welfare of souls, but also of human weakness, which likens it to the moral law and distinguishes it from civil legislation, which is much more external and inflexible. (12) Finally, the “De misericordia et justitia”, in three books, composed before 1121 by Algerus of Liege, a general treatise on ecclesiastical discipline, in which is foreshadowed the scholastic method of Gratian, reprinted in P.L., CLXXX. Introduction to Canon Law Class Notes (1)-1. (3) If we consider the subject matter of the law, we have the public law (jus publicum) and private law (jus privatum). [56] A later and contrary law obrogates an earlier law. In the first place, the legislative authority makes laws only when circumstances require them and in accordance with a definite plan. (Iuris Canonici Doctor, Doctor of Canon Law), and those with a J.C.L. In 692 the Council in Trullo passed 102 disciplinary canons, the second of which enumerates the elements of the official collection: they are the texts we have just mentioned, together with the canons of Sardica, and of Carthage (419), according to Dionysius Exiguus, and numerous canonical letters of the great bishops, SS. On the other hand, most of the adherents of the German school, following the idea of the Roman law (Inst., I, 1, 4; “Publicum jus est quod ad statum rei Romans) spectat: privatum quod ad privatorum utilitntem”), define public law as the body of laws determining the rights and duties of those invested with ecclesiastical authority, whereas for them private law is that which sets forth the rights and duties of individuals as such. This exceptional law is often referred to as a privilege (privilegium, lex vrivata), though the expression is applied more usually to concessions made to an individual. The official collections were the Liber Extra (1234) of Pope Gregory IX, the Liber Sextus (1298) of Boniface VIII and the Clementines (1317), prepared for Clement V but published by John XXII.
