The Rare Book Collection at the Lillian Goldman Law Library includes outstanding holdings on canon law, both those developed by the library itself, and those acquired from the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. These collections hold manuscript and print materials, including incunabula, primary source material, and scholarship on canon law. Please contact the Rare Book Librarian with any questions or to access these materials.
The circulating collections include a great many monographs on the subject, searchable via the usual methods on the Law Library catalog. Scholars may also wish to simply browse the stacks at call numbers KBR-KBU, or KD for those interested in English canon law. Studies on the ius commune can be found generally in call numbers KJC-KJE. The Law Library also subscribes to a number of canon law journals, including the Bulletin of Medieval Canon Law, The Jurist, and Studia Gratiana. Please contact the Reference Desk with any questions regarding non-rare materials.
