A Practical Commentary to the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches
The two-volume Practical Commentary on the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches is the work of canonists and experts of the Eastern and Latin Churches. The editors are two well-known canonists, John D. Faris and Jobe Abbass, OFM Conv.
The work provides both the Latin and English translation of the 1990 Codex Canonum Ecclesiarum Orientalium and the updates of the 2015 Mitis et Misericors Iesus and takes into account the provisions of the 2016 De Concordia inter Codices. English translations of documents relevant to the promulgation of the Eastern Code are included. Along with a canon-by-canon commentary, the Practical Commentary includes references to Nuntia and the iter of each canon, tables of corresponding canons, an analytical index, and a table indicating the sources referred to in the Code.
