The Legal Framework of the Church of England

A Critical Study in a Comparative Context

Norman Doe

A Clarendon Press Publication

This book describes the formal law of the Church of England, the internal system of rulemaking within the church, and the applicability of secular law to church activities. Among the large number of topics covered in this uniquely broad-ranging book are church government, the rights and duties of clergy and laity, doctrine, liturgy, the church's rites, and the management of property and finance. Each of these topics is critically examined and compared with the canon law of the Roman Catholic Church.
