"Codification and Law in the Church," a Canon Law Conference
On the 13th and 14th of March 2017, at the initiative of the School of Canon Law, took place the 21st Congress of studies on the subject, Codification and Law in the Church.
"The Centenary of the first codification invites the canonist to question the historical significance of the decision to give a systematic order to ecclesiastical legislation; on the consequences of this option for the canonical rules and their content, on the continuity with tradition or not, on the method of canonical science and its instruction, on how to apply justice in the Church and, ultimately, on today's reality of codified canon law," said the organizers.
The purpose of the conference was to "offer a space for reflection that will help to rethink the regulatory system of the Church and the role of canonical science. The speakers, moving from personal visions, will help to emphasize different aspects of the legislation and doctrine that are more amenable to adaptation to the contemporary historical reality."
