Overview

 

 

The Corpus Iuris Canonici denotes a set of six works under which canon law was organized from the time of Gratian until the promulgation of the Pio-Benedictine Code in 1917, that is, roughly 800 years. According to Gasparri, the publication of Gratian's Concordantia (later reckoned the first part of the CJC) inaugurated a period of canon law, the Ius Novum, that lasted until the Council of Trent (1545-1563) at which point canon law entered, per Gasparri, the Ius Novissimum phase. I suggest a modification of Gasparri's timeline, as follows:

Whereas Gasparri suggests the following sequence in the development of canon law:

c. 1140

1545-1563

1917, 1983

Ius Antiquum

Gratian inaugurates Ius Novum

Trent inaugurates

the Ius Novissimum

Codifications

 

I suggest that the following sequence more accurately reflects what happened:

c. 1140      1234

1545-1563

1917, 1983

Ius Antiquum

Gratian inaugurates the Ius Novum

Trent
