"Irrevocabilis consensus personalis": Around the Anthropological Assumptions of the Matrimonial Law System in the CCEO
Languages of publication
The conciliar formula irrevocabilis consensus personalis is not a synonym of a "contract" – it is a synonym of a covenant. The attempt of a verification of this hypothesis, undertaken in this study, is based on two elementary methodological assumptions: (1) the heritage of a Christian personalistic thought – adopted and integrated in the theological anthropology of the constitution Gaudium et spes – is at the basis of the Catholic Church matrimonial law system; (2) the adoption of the mentioned formula significantly increases the outlook in the science of canon law on the system change of the paradigm: on a turn away from the contractualistic formulas toward personalistic depictions. A precise description of the covenant of matrimonial love in the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches – with an optimal connection of natural and transcendent aspects – allowed for: (1) revealing the relation of Christ – Church, rooted in God’s Caritas, as an icon of matrimonial communion realized in Christian matrimony; (2) revealing the Trinitarian foundations of holy matrimony.
