'''Canon law''' is the tradition of the canonical legislation , which governs Orthodox Church life. It touches on every area of Church life, including [[Ecclesiology]], [[Liturgy]], and [[Ethics]]. Although generally referred to as canon law, it is more correctly referred to in the Orthodox community as the ''tradition of the holy canons''. This law, the canonical tradition, involves persons who are invested with authority (such as bishops) enabled with the means of creating, formulating, interpreting, executing, validating, amending and revoking these ''laws'' through synodical or conciliar action:.
