SALINAS ARANEDA, Carlos. Participation of Peruvian Bishops in 1917 Canon Law Codification: "postulata episcoporum". Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2010, n.32, pp.421-450. ISSN 0716-5455. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-54552010000100016.
In 1904, Pope Saint Pius X ordered the first draft for the Code of Canon Law that the Latin Church ever had. The codification task, however, was not only the work of a closed group of experts, but it also took into account the considerations of the Latin episcopate that was consulted in two different occasions and, in both times, the Peruvian bishops were consulted. Based on the documents kept at the Vatican Secret Archives, this article studies the contribution of the Peruvian bishops in their first request in 1904.
