Divided into five parts: the legal regulation of the Church; the institutional organization of the Church; the ministry of the Church; the doctrine, liturgy and rites of the Church; and the property and finance of the Church, this text puts the laws of the Church in Wales into a historical context.
' ... sure to become an indispensable part of the library of everyone who needs to know where the Church in Wales stands legally. Professor Doe provides a systematic and practical statement of the law, and, where Welsh law is silent, refers to parallels in other Anglican provinces ... The book is thoroughly researched, and produced to the highest standards.' Church Times '...this book should be warmly welcomed as an addition to ecclesiastical and canon law libraries in England and further afield, both as a general comparative study and for its treatment of the legal issues raised by the distinctive history of the Church in Wales. It will be an indispensable volume for lawyers working in Wales and for others with a serious role or interest in church administration there. If a paperback reprint were available even cheaper there would be no excuse for any parish in Wales to be without a copy'. Ecclesiastical Law Journal
