This fourth revised edition brings an invaluable text thoroughly up to date in light of recent and forthcoming changes to ecclesiastical law. Theological students and clergy need to know the canon law in which much of their theology and parish work is embedded.

Practising lawyers will find here information on the immediate problems arising in ecclesiastical cases as well as the background of ecclesiastical law in which they are set.

This book deals with the basic principles on which canon law is built and with the complications which arise by reason of the Establishment, and gives in outline the constitution of the Church of England, and the law relating to its worship, sacraments, property, and persons.
