Theo 271.1 / Theo 371.1
Reginaldo Mananzan, SJ
W 2:00 - 4:40 pm

This course studies the Church's understanding of marriage and its legislation, beginning with its early history until the Code of Canon Law of 1983. In particular, it considers the following: the theological and pastoral aspects of marriage as genuine covenant; consent and form in marriage contract; requisites for validity, liceity and nullity; grounds for annulment, dissolution and separation; impediments, validation, and current issues. It notes legitimate adaptations of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines and makes necessary correlation to civil legislation.

This course is open only to lay persons, to ordained priests, and religious sisters and brothers, --but not to seminarians and scholastics who take Canon Law courses as part of the seminary course. Previous knowledge of Canon Law and Pastoral Ministry will be helpful but not required to enroll in the course.
