Overview

Available for the first time in a comprehensive English translation, this thoroughly annotated but easy-to-use presentation of the classic 1917 Code of Canon Law by canon and civil lawyer Dr. Edward Peters is destined to become the standard reference work on this milestone of Church law. More than just of historical interest, the 1917 Code is an indispensable tool for understanding the current 1983 Code under which the Roman Catholic Church governs itself.

Dr. Peters' faithful translation of the original Latin text of 1917, along with his detailed references to such key canonical works as Canon Law Digest and hundreds of English language doctoral dissertations on canon law produced at the world's great Catholic universities, now allows researchers to access directly this great fountain of ecclesiastical legal science. No student of canon law, and indeed, no one with a need to understand modern Church administration, can afford to be without this important volume.

    This Book Changed My Life

    This book is amazing! I've read over 800 Canons (out of 2,414) & have been known to read almost 40 Canons in one day. The 1917 Code of Canon Law has changed my life. I now want to be a Canon Lawyer and one of the World's leading experts in the '17 CIC (Codex Iuris Canonici) &, without this wonderful translation, I would never have discovered my enthusiasm for Canon Law (thanks Dr. Peters!). It's important to have a firm grasp of the '17 CIC in order to understand the accomplishments & failings of the 1983 CIC. This Code is a must-have for anyone interested in learning about the Church's Law. The language can be a bit old-fashioned & slightly confusing at times but there's a charm to the old Code that you just don't find in the '83 CIC. Included is the Ap. Const. 'Providentissima Mater Ecclesia' [by which Pope Benedict XV promulgated the '17 CIC],the Motu Proprio 'Cum Iuris Canonici' [establishing the Pontifical Comission for the Interpretation of Legislative Texts], the original introduction by Pietro Cardinal Gasparri & the index has a selection of Apostolic Constitutions.
