La Recension canonique

La Recension canonique (“the canonical review”) is an indexed, searchable database listing relevant articles from leading canonical publications in English and French, together with their publication information, logically grouped under each canon of the Code of Canon Law.

You can download a PDF version of the database here: La Recension canonique.

The database has been updated annually since 1983, the year of the earliest publications included. It was created by the Rev. Benoît-Marc Boyer, a lawyer and priest with the Diocese of Montreal. In 2015, Fr. Boyer donated the results of his many years of work to the Faculty of Canon Law of the Institut catholique de Paris, which is now responsible for maintaining and updating the database.
