Using an analytical methodology, this work explores integral reordering in the "traditio canonica" as well as its contemporary understanding. It also presents a hierarchical model for evaluating juridic documents and the norms within them. Based on the research presented in the initial chapter, the second section formulates rules that serve as indicators in determining if a specific juridic document, institute, or norm has been integrally reordered and thereby revoked. The final chapter applies the rules of integral reordering to a specific example of ecclesiastical law, namely, the law that binds members of religious institutes. This section includes a survey of juridic documents of the universal church that have impacted upon religious law since the time of the Second Vatican Council. The work offers a comprehensive working definition of integral reordering, and concludes with relevant and related canonical questions which take the reader beyond the scope of the study.
