This Dictionary was written for everyone but Canon Lawyers. It is a simple attempt to define for the average person, some of the terms that are important in Church Law. Each word is explained in regards to its meaning and usage. This is not a dictionary of difficult words but of more than two hundred words commonly used in Canon Law; all of the obvious words, and some that may just be interesting.
This Dictionary is meant for people who work in Tribunals or Dioceses, members of Parish Councils, priests and teachers, members of religious life and civil lawyers too, but most of all, for the people sitting in the pews every Sunday who care deeply about their Church.
The appendices include a Word Index, Commentaries on the Code of Canon Law, and A Comparison of Canon and Civil Terms of Law.
The Code of Canon Law of 1983 is the latest Code and the one on which this Dictionary is based.
