Edward Peters. To work for the proper implementation of canon law is to play an extraordinarily. Pope John Paul II. B log. F acebook. Liber Extra. Eastern Code Resolution x Yes, the footnotes to the Code are intimidating, but now, there's hope! Ed Peters, and the spirit of Ed Wood, are proudish to present.

Ed's solaranite-powered guide. Greetings, my friends. We are all interested in the past, for that is where you and I have spent all of our lives.

You are interested in the unknown. The mysterious. The unexplainable. That is why you are here. And now, for the first time, we are bringing to you the full story of the "Footnotes to the Code".

We are bringing you all the evidence, based only on the secret testimony, of the miserable souls, who survived the terrifying ordeal of figuring out how to use Pio-Benedictine footnotes on their own.

My friends, we cannot keep this a secret any longer. Let us punish the guilty. Let us reward the innocent. My friends, can your hearts stand the shocking facts about the. Codicis Iuris Canonici Fontes? The Amazing Criswell predicts. Not all provisions in the Code have footnotes. If you need to know which ones don't have footnotes, see Fontes IX: In canons with numbered subdivisions, a footnote for a subdivision applies only to that subdivision.

Canons can, and many do, have more than one footnote. In the Code, footnote numbering starts over with each page. Because different editions arranged pages differently, footnote numbers often changed from edition to edition. When multiple citations are made to the same authority such as, here,.

You just have to supply it. Getting acquainted. Large blocks of finely printed, densely packed, alpha-numeric Latin abbreviations. What could be less inviting? Put-off by the seeming impenetrability of Pio-Benedictine footnotes, many researchers give up consulting them without even trying.

And that's a pity. The provisions of the Pio-Benedictine Code reflect nearly two millennia of accumulated pastoral and legal wisdom, and their footnotes identify more effectively than can be imagined the almost-countless occasions for refining that wisdom. Let's see how. By baptism a human is constituted a person in the Church of Christ with all of the rights and duties of Christians unless, in what applies to rights, some bar obstructs, impeding the bond of ecclesiastical communion, or there is a censure laid down by the Church.

There is a footnote to this canon, as it happens, one that contains a sample of almost everything one might find in a Pio-Benedictine footnote. We will use this footnote as a model below, but for now let's just see what it looks like :. XXIV, q. I, de poenit. VII, de baptismo , can. XIV, de poenitentia , c. XI; ep. Fide C. Epiri , 25 febr. Don't be concerned if almost nothing in this footnote makes sense yet. Almost nothing in Plan Nine from Outer Space makes sense, but that doesn't detract from its greatness.

So, after you've let your how-am-I-ever-going-to-do-my-JCL-thesis-if-I-can't-even-read-the-footnotes-to-theCode anxiety recede, take a deep breath, and look more carefully at each line in the note. Surely you recognized the names of some popes e. That tells you something, namely, that papal writings contributed to the formation of Pio-Benedictine law.

You probably also recognized several dates e. From that you see first that Cdl. Gasparri used the European dating convention day-month-year in his citations but, more importantly, you see that documents from many centuries were culled during the drafting of this canon.

The Code was not thrown together by folks with no sense of canonical history. Finally, you might have recognized the names of some locations such as Quebec, Bucharest, or Nanking. Even that is useful: it underscores that the Code, a law intended to be applied throughout the Catholic world, drew on experiences garnered from around the world.

Or at least in this canon it did. Not a bad set of observations for someone who thinks he can't figure out what's contained in the footnotes to the Code. Now, on to bigger things. Really getting started. Sometimes genius. This was doubtless a time-saving device. It is clear, though, that Gasparri considered " vide etiam " footnotes as footnotes for both the original and the referred provisions. Patrolman Jamie was right: It's tough to find something when you don't know what you're looking for.

So, what are you looking for here? There are basically only four kinds of canonical resources listed in the footnotes of the Code. Not every Pio-Benedictine footnote presents citations to all four types of sources, but if you know in advance what you might find, it will make it much easier to determine whether you've found it.

If we color-code those four categories thus:. That's not so bad. Again, don't worry if you can't decipher the citations within each grouping. For now, we only want to establish that virtually all Pio-Benedictine footnotes are limited to these four fundamental categories.

Moreover, citations to these sources will always be presented in the above order. Thus, with only a little practice, one will be able to tell instantly whether, say, any Corpus Iuris Canonici references are found in a given footnote.

Likewise, if one is looking only for, say, Tridentine contributions to legal formulations, there is no need to hunt through an entire, sometimes quite lengthy, footnote to find out whether there are any Tridentine citations. You now know exactly where in the footnote to look for such cites. Folks who know how. It's not getting ahead of ourselves to observe that, within each of these four categories of sources, further subdivisions will become apparent, all of which are easy to understand once they are pointed out.

You might have already noticed, e. There are logical subdivisions within Corpus Iuris Canonici and Roman Curia citations, but those are more complicated and will be discussed below. In all cases, though, a semi-colon ; separates specific entries. Note, finally, that the "category-comes-first and sequence-comes-second rule" is followed even if an entry in one category predates an entry in an earlier category as above, one of the papal citations pre-dates the Council of Trent.

Makes no difference, all citations in an earlier category are listed before any citations in a subsequent category are given. These four categories of sources can be traced back to the consultors' first directions for the codification project, when they specified examination of "the Corpus Speaking of practice, now might be a good time to get some.

Examine the footnotes to the following canons, and verify whether you can identify the categories and number of references in those categories that are found in each. Using the four fundamental categories of citations. I'm now going to explain in some detail how to use all four categories of Pio-Benedictine footnotes, but the first category, the Corpus Iuris Canonici , is frankly the most difficult. Feel free to skip to Council of Trent very easy , Papal Writings easy , or Roman Curia pretty easy once someone shows you , and save the Corpus citations till your confidence is built up on the other three categories.

Or, just dive in. Your call. Friedberg uses column numbers, not page numbers. If a title heading is given in a Corpus footnote, it may be disregarded, as the title number is sufficient to identify the source. It's a terrific work, laid out exactly as students would have studied it for hundreds of years. Click here for a list. Gratian's Decretum.
