about

This book describes in detail the ways in which the life of the Church of England is affected by law. It deals with a great many topics including canonical jurisprudence, ecclesiastical government, the ministry of clergy and laity, faith, doctrine and liturgy, the churches' rites and themanagement of property and finance. Each of these subjects is studied and analysed critically and where appropriate comparisons are made with the Roman Catholic Church. Five general themes emerge:first is the degree to which the church can be said to be regulated; the second concerns the increasingly important use of administrative rules created executively at national and diocesian level to supplement the churches formal law; the third examines the relationshipbetween the formal law and the pastoral values of clarity, certainty and flexibility; the fourth theme is the applicability of secular law; the final theme is the comparison with the canon law of the Roman Catholic Church. Thus the book provides for the first time a comprehensive, descriptive andcritical analysis of the legal framework of the Church of England and the regulatory instruments which operate within this framework.

Editorial Reviews

... I am able to commend, in the very warmest terms, Norman Doe's masterly work on the Canon Law of the Church of England.../ ... the depth and breadth of his knowledge is encapsulated in this book in a fashion that is readable as well as informative, and, where sensible, a littleprovocative./ This reviewer, in his daily work, already has cause to celebrate Norman Doe's publication, and it comes with a wholehearted recommendation./ Geoffrey Smith, Law and Justice, (journal undated)
