The Function of the Legal Definition in Canon Law: References to the Latin-Polish Translation of Some Religious Institutes’ Constitutions

Przemysław Michowicz

Abstract


The aim of this paper is to present a legal activity of the ecclesiastic Legislator in order to de-fine legal terms used in the Constitutions of chosen religious Institutes. The Author highlights the importance of this activity in the Roman law and its influence on the modern legal ordinations as civil law and common law. The Author also takes into consideration the single legal institutions and compares their meaning with the original Latin significance. The Author points out how important is to determine the proper meaning of a single legal term and suggests such criteria of scientifically research as necessity, opportunity and impossibility to define.
