Canon Law

Canon Law The word “canon” origins from Greek and literally means “rule”. The term refers to the internal law of the Christian Orthodox Church, the Catholic Church, and the Anglican Churches. The Christian Church has set this body of law in written canon Codes. Although this branch of Law almost in all countries, is not binding upon citizens and usually has no recognized legal confirmation in the local legislation. In some cases, people rely on the Canon Law, however, for the performance of their religious procedures. For example, like revoke of marriage to allow for a Christian church marriage where one of the parties has been previously divorced. This sphere of the Law is also known as “Ecclesiastical law”.
