The Orthodox Church's history and Tradition have been described as the úchallenge of our past." Canon law Is an important part of this Tradition. Through examination of primary and secondary historical sources, this course examines the canonical history of the Church, with a special emphasis on the Churches of the Byzantine tradition. Students are to be able to identify the Sacred Canons of the Church as well as their historical interpretation over the centuries. Finally, the process of codification of canon law in the Catholic Churches will be examined, with a critical exploration of the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches as an approach to address the challenges of the modem Church while remaining faithful to the Canonical Tradition of the Christian East.
