Description

PT 9 — POLITY AND CANON LAW OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH

This course will provide an opportunity to view the institutional life of The Episcopal Church. Every permanent social gathering of people creates laws and structures for itself. Christians have done so—for centuries! The canons of the church have a history, a context, a manner in which they should be read and interpreted. We’ll deal with foundational questions such as: what is “law”? Why does the Church have law? What is our canonical tradition? What is the relationship between ecclesiology and law? We’ll also examine very practical contemporary issues: how we govern ourselves, our national, diocesan, and parish structures; church property issues; worship and law; a special examination of the Marriage canons; how law both limits and expands ministry. Norms of Church discipline will be reviewed. Actual case studies, legal documents and diocesan forms will be used to make this a “hands-on” course.

Adj. Prof. Joseph Campo. 2 credits.
Michaelmas 2013. Wednesdays, 3:30-5:20pm.
