Edition of the Constitutions and Statutes

18/06/2010: General House

The 21 General Chapter left a double task to be performed in relation to the Constitutions over the next few years. In the first place, it saw the need to gather in a single text all the changes which have been made in both the Constitutions and the Statutes. The number of articles that have undergone modifications since the edition of 1985 is significant and it would be very useful to have them altogether in one volume. The second task emerging from the Chapter has reference to a thorough revision of the Constitutions and Statutes, with the full participation of the Brothers.

With reference to the first task, the Chapter asked the General Government to “appoint a Publication Team, which will integrate in a single text the various changes effected in the Constitutions and Statutes by this and previous Chapters. This text will be consistent in style, language, numbering and references”. To carry out this task, the General Council has appointed Brothers Antonio Ramalho, co-ordinator, Juan Miguel Anaya and Edward Clisby (General Administration) and Maurice Goutagny (l’Hermitage).

This small Publication Team, once its work is complete, will publish the text of the collection made, which will serve as a working instrument for achieving the second task proposed by the Chapter. For this work of revision and animation, the Chapter asked the General Council to “appoint a commission to carry out this revision and that the new text be presented at the XXII General Chapter”. At present, the General Council has not yet named the members of this commission.
