General Conclusions

Show Summary Details


This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the worldwide perspective of canon law of churches in the Anglican Communion. It suggests that there are unifying principles in Anglican churches. These include legal unity in ecclesiastical government, in the institutional organization of churches, in the laws of the ministry, and in the subjects of doctrine and liturgy. This chapter concludes that Anglican churches are united on the legal level by virtue of their relations with the state in which they exist.
