Overview

Available for the first time in a comprehensive English translation, this thoroughly annotated yet 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 direct access to 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.

    I have no idea why a 1 star review with no explanation is the only rating on here. First and foremost Dr. Peters is an excellent canonist. Second, at the time of the publication of the previous code, a comprehensive translation into vernacular languages was not permitted. The multi-volume Fr. Augstine Commentary on Canon Law got around that by providing a full quotation in Latin and then giving a detailed explanation, but that was hardly the same thing. When the new & current code was promulgated, the old code fell by the wayside. Enter Dr. Peter’s most excellent work, which finally gives a comprehensive translation for the sake of those studying the history of current texts and their background. In English there simply isn’t an equivalent resource.
