About this title


Institutes of diocesan law often receive scant consideration due to the realization that they are yet in their adolescent period of life in search of determination and stability, as well as from the fact that most are in their transitoral stage preparatory of a subsequent pontifical approval. Consequently, the canonical rulings guiding them are often not well exposed and so frequently misunderstood.
This work undertakes to expound their juridical condition which converges on the two elements of autonomy - as self-organizative ability to realize their specified goals and conserve their charisms - and of dependence on the local ordinaries as an encouraging support and guarantee.


« autora merece todas las congratulaciones. A la obra, por supuesto, no le falta documentación y rigor científico. Pero al mismo tiempo va acompañada de una exposición de gran claridad y fluidez; no soslaya los temas difíciles o discutidos; explica el origen y vicisitudes del nuevo texto legal con un gran sentido pedagógico; valora las normas con buen sentido y equilibrio, y brinda, por ello, una obra útil al experto y perfectamente accesible al no iniciado. En resumen una obra que recomendamos calurosamente y a la que auguramos amplia difusión.» (J.L. Acebal, Revista Española de Derecho canonico)
