Description

Whether it was the church's interest in certain sinful behaviors or the fact that ecclesiastical personnel or institutions were parties involved in a given situation, ecclesiastical or "canon" law found its way into every corner of society. Recently scholars of the canon law have begun to focus more attention on the social context in which the law was both framed and administered. This session looks at issues like infant mortality, divorce, misbehaving officials, and real estate transactions to explore how church law and secular society existed in parallel or, sometimes, at cross purposes.
