Аннулирование брака в каноническом праве Римской Церкви: милосердине процесса против догматической жесткости нерасторжимости

Вопросы правоведения. 2016. № 3. С. 75-89.

The article considers the key points of the Pope Francisk Motu Proprio "Mitis Judex Dominus Jesus" in the light of the dilemma: on one hand, the Catholic Church insists on the indissolubility of marriage, but on the other - the Canon Law offers a wide range of widely interpreted grounds for holding the marriage invalid. The article shows, that the reason for that is an attempt to understand the literary meaning of the New Testament texts without a link to the Old Testament tradition. Failure to take the Old Testament tradition into consideration has led to various legal tools actually aimed at annulment of the absolute indissolubility of valid and consummated marriage.
