Existentialism, Eschatology and Wisdom: Canon Law as an Interim Agent of the Kingdom

  • Kenyon Homfray (a1)

Using methods of analysis suggested by existentialism, existential eschatology and the wisdom tradition, this paper seeks to offer an understanding of what canon law is and why canon law is necessary for the church, in a philosophical and theological sense. The paper concludes that canon law may be seen as an interim agent of the Kingdom. The analysis is grounded in the phenomenological, stoic and platonic schools of thought, formed as ontological questions.
