Workshop:

Legal Boundaries and Illegal Practices: Spiritual Abuse in Canon Law



February 16th, 2024
9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST




What can canon law do in the case of spiritual abuse? To find an adequate answer, we need to understand how canon law "thinks" about the human person. Systematic and historical aspects will shed new light on the fundamental rights and protection concepts of the CIC/1983. Constitutional and procedural aspects will help to clarify open questions of hierarchy and the distribution of power and competence.Dr. Stephan Hecht will lead us in this question.

Dr. Katja Zimmermann will take over at this point and discuss with us the question of whether and how spiritual abuse can be combated by secular law. There are some limits. This raises the question of the extent to which we need canon law (and not secular law) to limit spiritual abuse and effectively counter its consequences. This will be discussed in the context of the sacrament of reconciliation to see what remedies and challenges canonical criminal law offers.
