About the Author:

Rhidian Jones holds first degrees in Law and Classics, and a Master's degree in Canon Law. He has served as vicar in the Church in Wales, sub-warden of a Centre for Christian Spirituality in Oxford, and archivist of the Abbey of Lérins, near Cannes. He is author of several publications, including a spiritual anthology of poems. He lives in Oxford where he writes and tutors.

Review:

'The detailed comparison of different Christian legal systems has been the neglected dimension of ecumenism. This unique dictionary is a handy guide to existing law and an invitation to increase mutual knowledge and cooperation.'
Fr Robert Ombres OP, University of Oxford
'At a time when the Anglican Communion is recovering an understanding of its Canon Law as an articulation of its identity and mission; and by comparative study, as a means of ecumenical dialogue with the Roman Catholic Church, this timely volume provides an invaluable source of reference, being both diverse and detailed, which will guide and illuminate research and scholarship.'
Mark Hill, Chancellor of the Diocese of Chichester
'This handbook is a most welcome addition to the growing library of canon law works. This value-for-money volume embraces a wealth of material which is well presented, and can only serve in casting light on terms which perhaps have been surrounded in obscurity.'
Revd Jonathan Redvers Harris, Parson and Parish
'At least since the days of Dr Johnson, lexicographers have been seen to be men or women of wide learning, great determination and astounding industry. Rhidian Jones joins their number. I want this book for reference and for pleasure.'
Sir John Owen, Auditor of the Chancery Court of York
'A most helpful reference book for Canon Lawyers.'
Msgr Ralph Brown, Former Vicar General to the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster
'A highly useful starting point in researching Church Law. What makes this volume so useful is that sources and commentaries for different points of law discussed are cited.'
Michael Daniel, AD 2000

Reviewed in: Together: The Ecumenical Newsletter for Sussex Churches, 46 (Winter 2001)
Highlights: "The Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England might sound dreary, but it's fun. It could save you at a critical moment in 'The Weakest Link' or get you through one more round of Brain of Britain. Can you tell the difference between curtilage and curate? You can with this book. You can distinguish between a catechesis, a catchumen, and a camerlengo. The Lambeth Quadrilateral is not after all a dance invented by Lewis Carroll. Never be outshone at a PCC or a Synod again."
"Its format is that of a glossary providing quick reference and easy alphabetical accessibility to the terminology and principal institutions of canon law in both the Roman Catholic and Anglican Communions...a most useful volume for Roman Catholics as well as Anglicans, and deserves a wider readership than professional canonists...I would recommend that all those involved in a shared church or Local Ecumenical Project purchase a copy."—Priests and People 15.4 (April 2001)

'The vocabulary of canon law is extraordinarily rich -especially when approached ecumenically. It also carries the weight ofits historical and theological antecedents; but as churches face newcircumstances and pressures, so fresh canonical terms emerge, or else newmeanings are attributed to existing terms. This second edition fullyrecognises these dynamics and is an indispensable starting point for studentsand practitioners alike.' - Professor Norman Doe, Director, Centre for Law andReligion, Cardiff Law School, UK

'Rhidian Jones's Handbook has proved its worth over thelast decade. The second edition of a book is botha sign of its success and the opportunity to update and improve. As well asproviding new entries, Jones has revised the existing entries on the canon lawof the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England so as to consolidate hisHandbook as a succinct guide to thelaws concerned. Comparative canon law has been described as the missing link inmuch ecumenical dialogue and activity: the Handbookwill continue to make this regrettable fact less the case.' - Robert Ombres OP,Dominican Procurator General, Rome.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is a thoroughly revised and updated standard work on the Canon law of the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England.

The appendices contain changes to the Universal law of the Roman Catholic Church which are outside the 1983 Code of Canon law.
