Overview

 

This page provides information on the fontes essendi and fontes cognoscendi used in developing Codex Vivens I-VII.

 


How to use

this page

 

Great care has been applied toward accuracy in the Codex Vivens, but no warranty of accuracy is made; moreover, all characterizations and opinions are mine.

To find out whether a given canon was cited in (or suggested by) one or more documents not listed in the Codex Vivens, simply word-search for the canon in question below.

 

To find out whether a given document not listed in the Codex Vivens was nevertheless examined for possibly relevant canons therein (and thereupon included or excluded here), simply word-search for the document in question below. Note that knowing whether a document can be excluded from one's further search can itself be a time-saving piece of information for researchers.

 

Users of this page should, of course, be familiar with matters discussed in the Introduction.

 


Fons essendi

 

Francis

 

This way of living attached to the laws distanced (people) from love and from justice. They followed the laws and they neglected justice. They followed the laws and they neglected love. And for these people Jesus had only one word: hypocrites. Pope Francis

Fons essendi

 

Benedict XVI

 

You should also learn to understand and–dare I say it–to love canon law, appreciating how necessary it is and valuing its practical applications: a society without law would be a society without rights. Law is the condition of love. Pope Benedict XVI

Official and

Semi-Official Publications

 

Documents are usually cited according to the most authoritative publication in which they appear. Thus, for example, if the same document appears in both the Acta Apostolicae Sedis and Communicationes, only the Acta text is cited.

 

Acta Apostolicae Sedis – The official commentary (journal) of the Holy See and, per 1983 CIC 8, the primary vehicle for the promulgation of ecclesiastical law. Volumes culled: 72 (1980) through 107 (2015).

 

Communicationes – The official journal of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts. Valuable in its own right, of course, but of limited usefulness here in that many official materials contained therein would have already been published elsewhere in a more timely manner. Cited materials are more likely of a semi-official character or, though published officially in L'Osservatore Romano, are more accessible in Communicationes. Volumes culled: 12 (1980) through 44 (2012).

 

L'Osservatore Romano – The semi-official newspaper of the Vatican City State (daily in Italian, weekly in English and several other languages). Occasionally used as a vehicle for promulgating normative texts (in which case, convenience stilll dictates that a cite in Communicationes be given if available), but in general not a major fons cognoscendi for canon law and not systemically searched herein. Volumes culled: n.a.
