Excerpt from A Treatise on the Law of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States The laws and regulations concerning the discipline of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States may be thus arranged: 1st. The Constitution and Canons of the General Convention, forming a code for the uniform government of every Diocese and every Church. 2d. The Constitution and Canons of the several Dioceses, of force only within their several precincts, and generally subordinate to the power of the General Convention. 3d. The Rubrics of the Church, and in some particulars, the Articles. 4th. The civil laws of the states affecting the Churches and their members, in regard to corporate or personal rights, civil privileges, and the acquisition and preservation of property. 5th. And to these, in my judgment, is to be added a portion of the Ecclesiastical Law of England; of that law strictly so called, and distinguished from what in that kingdom is known as the Foreign Canon Law.
