Juan Ignacio Arrieta analyzes the particular organization of the government of the Vatican State and the characteristics of its legal system, which, due to the requirements of international accord, has grown increasingly complex. Apart from having a particular state organization, there is in force within the Vatican a complete legal system and sovereign jurisdiction is exercised and enforced by independently instituted civil courts of the State . . . . This type of study represents a need which, beyond exhibiting and analyzing the rule of law which exists in the State, provides a scientific reflection and comparison in order to contribute to greater coherence in the juridical activity brought to fruition in the same State.
The present volume provides an orderly record of all of this as well as tracing the historical background of the various institutions and of the reasons for their evolution over time.
