Riassunto: Scicluna presents a detailed and well-documented study of the way Roman Catholic canonical tradition, especially in the last 150 years, has tackled the challenge of providing a juridical definition of marriage. Three main sources are consistently analyzed: the documents of the magisterium; the jurisprudence of the Apostolic Tribunals of the Catholic church; and the works of experts in canon law. Two important canonical legal texts, the 1917 and 1983 Codes of Canon Law, are taken as essential points of reference which gives chronological structure to the work. The book not only describes developments in a technical and scientific manner but also provides material for further discussion on the meaning and interpretation of phrases like 'the essential obligations of marriage' and 'the essential elements of marriage.'
About the Author: Charles J. Scicluna is Lecturer in Pastoral Theology at the University of Malta and holds both a LL.D. (Doctor of Laws) from the University of Malta and a J.C.D. (Doctor in Canon Law with Specialization in Jurisprudence) from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
