TSC 516 History of Institutions of Canon Law
Faculty: Rev. Jude Onogbosele, J.C.D. (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
A juridical institution is a set of norms coordinated among themselves, which regulate a determined group of juridical relations (part of positive law). A social institution (such as the Catholic Church) is defined and regulated by positive law (its institutions). This study is not about the history of the Church in general, nor about the history of canon law in general, but about the history legal institutions in the Church. The ultimate goal of this tutorial is to explain one aspect of the mystery of the Church, the development of juridical and canonical institutions with special concentration on the relationship between these works and the “work” of the living organism, the Church.
