The 1917 Code of Canon Law in English & Latin (2 vols.)

Digital Verbum Edition

Verbum Editions are fully connected to your library and Bible study tools.



The 1917 Code of Canon Law is a landmark of canonical jurisprudence that remains indispensable for understanding the current form of the Latin-Rite Catholic Church.  The drafters of the 1917 Code condensed and reconciled decrees, decretals, precedent and procedural developments that had accumulated over centuries into a single code that touched on all aspects of the visible Church. This most important code is fundamental to understanding the decrees of the Second Vatican Council and is the foundation for the 1983 Code, which, along with Catechism of the Catholic Church, are the most important ecclesiastical documents promulgated since the Council of Trent in the sixteenth century.

The Logos edition ties the canons into the rest of your Logos library seamlessly. References to these canons will appear on mouseover in the reference texts in your library, allowing you to see the exact citation without losing your place. Read the Latin and the English side-by-side and use the dictionary look-up tool to investigate English or Latin words and concepts. Logos brings your studies on canon law further than ever.
