Ius Ecclesiae: An Historical Look at Canon Law is a new exhibit from CUA Libraries. The physical display is located at CUA in the second floor lobby of Mullen Library. There is an excellent virtual exhibit demonstrating the use of a StoryMap. The power of Story Maps use geography, history and links to local content to show you the story and connect you to library resources.

In the simplest terms, canon law is the body of laws that governs the Church. Through nearly two thousand years of history, Catholic canon law developed parallel to civil legal traditions while incorporating evolving theological ideas into its framework. To learn more, check out our 2nd floor book display and online exhibit.

The digital tool(s) used to create this StoryMap begin with the GIS software from ESRI. “Esri Story Maps let you combine authoritative maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content. They make it easy to harness the power of maps and geography to tell your story.”

For more information on the making of this virtual exhibit, please contact Religious Studies and Humanities Services (314, 316 Mullen) 202-319-5088.
