Abstract

This essay focuses on the multinormativity (diversitas legum) of the Ecclesiastical State, perhaps the most complicated legal system of the early-modern period. Such multi-normative environment is studied in two contexts: legal education and legal practice; the first in a lecture on the differentiae between canon and civil law by G.P. Lancellotti (1573), and the second in a text by G.B. De Luca (1669-78).

Keywords: multinormativity, sources of law, canon law, legal education, jurisdiction
