I have a Power Point presentation on Canon Law that has some history at the beginning of it. Canon Law developed and was not specifically codified until the 20 century. However you did see it moving in that direction before that. It essentially started with the Canons of the first Church Councils. The PP is small and can be Emailed if anyone is interested. I’m not at home, I’m in Seattle at the moment but can send it when I return. Send me an Email requesting it.
