Citations and Free Notes, 1983 Code of Canon Law, authoritative sources


 

This webpage is under development. Your patience is appreciated.

 

Overview

 

Notwithstanding its ancient roots and ultimate dependence on a stable body of doctrine, canon law undergoes continuous legal development. This development can be authoritative and compelling (in that it proceeds from the organs of ecclesiastical governance and directly binds those concerned with the observance of justice in the Church), or it can be academic yet persuasive (in that it proceeds from the insights of scholars but reliably guides those concerned with the achievement of good order in the Church). While distinguishable, especially in the short run, in themselves, these two mechanisms of canonical development heavily influence each other over time. Tracking, therefore, both the authoritative and the scholarly contributions to canonistics is important for understanding the canon law of the Catholic Church.

 

This webpage on authoritative sources and its sister page on academic studies serve two purposes.

 

First, because good canonical writing requires frequent careful citation to a variety of authoritative sources and academic studies, many of which citations are repeated from topic to topic, and because I dislike retyping technical data each time I need it and would prefer not to hunt through prior works in search of citations I used earlier, I have gathered my most-used citations (and then some) into two primary places for convenient copying-and-pasting. Others are welcome to use these pages as they wish.

 

Second, these pages allow me to make some points about footnoting techniques in general (which are increasingly outdated) and about canonical citation systems in particular (which are inconsistent and oft confusing). Those interested in reflecting more deeply on such matters are invited to [coming] for more discussion, but for now, I simply suggest that the citations presented herein model an efficient citation method for modern canonistics.

 

Recall, finally, that canon law is an international legal system and that materials in many languages, but especially Latin of course, contribute to its proper implementation. The citations below reflect, nevertheless, my situation as an American canonist with easiest access to materials in English.

 

 

1983 Code of Canon Law

 

The primary legislative document for the Roman Catholic Church is Codex Iuris Canonici auctoritate Ioannis Pauli PP. II promulgatus (25 ian 1983), Acta Apostolicae Sedis 75/2 (1983) 1-320, and as revised, Eng. trans., Canon Law Society of America, Code of Canon Law, Latin-English Edition, New English Translation (Canon Law Society of America, 1999) 751 pp. Latine. English. Español. Français. Italiano. Deutsch.

 

Per its Canon 6 § 1, 1°, the Johanno-Pauline Code replaces the Pio-Bendictine Code, that is, Codex Iuris Canonici, Pii X Pontificis Maximi iussu digestus Benedicti Papae XV auctoritate promulgatus (27 mai 1917), Acta Apostolicae Sedis 9/2 (1917) 3-521, Eng. trans., Edward Peters, The 1917 or Pio-Benedictine Code of Canon Law in English Translation with Extensive Scholarly Apparatus (Ignatius Press, 2000) 777 pp.

 

Citations to materials on the 1917 Code are available at the Master Page on the Pio-Benedictine Code of 1917.

Canon 1, Western canon law

 

A few common disciplinary matters are treated in both Western and Eastern canon law (e.g. norms on enrollment of the baptized into Catholic churches sui iuris), but most Eastern canonical issues are regulated by Codex Canonum Ecclesiarum Orientalium, auctoritate Ioannis Pauli PP. II promulgatus (18 oct 1990), Acta Apostolicae Sedis 82 (1990) 1033-1363, and as revised, Eng. trans., Canon Law Society of America, Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches, Latin-English Edition (Canon Law Society of America, 1992) 785 pp., [herein CCEO]. Latine.

 

Citations to materials on Eastern canon law are available at the Master Page on Eastern Canon Law (1990).

Canon 2, liturgical law

 

Although some important liturgical provisions appear in Book IV, liturgical issues are generally not treated in the Johanno-Pauline Code; worse for ministerial and scholarly needs, liturgical law has not been codified. The primary fontes cognoscendi of liturgical law concern: the Mass, the Pontifical, the Ritual, the Liturgy of the Hours, and Chants. Huels, Liturgy and Law (2006) 219-222.

 

Canon 2, Tridentine rite

 

The celebration of the Tridentine rite is facilitated by Benedictus XVI, m. p. Summorum Pontificum (7 iul 2007), Communicationes 39 (2007) 175-179; by Pont. Comm. Ecclesia Dei, instr. Universae Ecclesiae (30 apr 2011), Communicationes 43 (2011) 105-12 (Latine), 113-120 (Italiano); and by Pont. Comm.

Canon 16, authentic interpretation

 

In 1984, Pope John Paul II established the Pontifical Commission for the Authentic Interpretation of the Code of Canon Law with authority to interpret officially the 1983 Code and other universal laws.

Italiano. The name of the Code Commission has changed frequently since its establishment. The original list of members, staff, and consulters of the Code Commission is given at Communicationes 16 (1984) 5-10. Current lists of those serving the Code Commission are available in the Annuario Ponitifico.
