Reviews - What do customers think about 1917 Pio-Benedictine Code of Canon Law?

A Book that Shows Serious Concern for Due Process and "Fair Play"  Dec 25, 2007
THE 1917 PIO-BENEDICTINE CODE OF CANON LAW is a comprehensive treatise of Canon Law which focused on Catholic Church administration, legal financial process,legal resposibility of the Catholic clergy, family law, specific due process, etc. While this book dealt with Catholic matters, its importance is reflected in that the Catholic Church's Canon Law was the model for other scientific legal systems such British Common Law and the British and U.S. Constitutional Law.

This book clearly defined what constituted lawful marriage, parent-children relationships, and parental responsibilities. Alert readers can readily see a similarity between Catholic Canon Law and current family law as practised in modern family courts. This part of the book also gives readers an insight regarding Church responsibility and counselling in family affairs.

The Code of Canon Law had clear definitions of criminal culpability regarding the Catholic clergy. Reading these comments again should remind readers of the current criminal due process. There were clear legal definitions of what constituted crime. This part of the book provides legal remedies for prosecution and is clear that one is innocent until proven guilty in a Canon Law Court. There are also excellent comments on financial responsibility and accounting within the Catholic Church while held dignataries such as bishops responsible for their parish and diocesan financial arrangements.

One aspect that this may surprise readers is the metculous concern of due process. This concern is not reflected in the Rules of Evidence, but it is also reflected in the reliability of witnesses and how much weight should be given to witness testimony. Readers can easily compare this concern for due process with modern secular law.

The value of this book is that it gives readers a better understanding of how "law and justice" originated. Due process, legal procedures, attempts at "fair play," etc. originated in the Canon Law, and this book is a good place to find some of the sources. Another useful part of the this book is the bibliography which is extensive. This book is highly recommended.
