Just could be the answer as to why there is never much said about the sovereignty of the crown (the Pope) in his role as the lawmaker.
The following is taken from the book (page 557) "Law, the State, and the International Community". (By James Brown Scott)
The writer is documenting the work of a Robert Bellarmine (1542 - 1621), and a man who was a definite 'heavyweight' at the law, in his time. (A Jesuit.)
St Robert Bellarmine, S.J. (Italian: Roberto Francesco Romolo Bellarmino; 4 October 1542 - 17 September 1621) was an Italian Jesuit and a Cardinal of the Catholic Church. He was one of the most important figures in the Counter-Reformation. He was canonized in 1930 and named a Doctor of the Church. Bellarmine is also widely remembered for his role in the Galileo affair.

What we Admins of this group are saying and what I am saying to Dean Clifford in our discussion is - for us to forget about the Pope and religion and yet, we should ONLY use, the Pope's law.
It's the law that we are all under. That no one is above. It's the law that the "Rule of Law" applies to.
Pope Francis says that:
.......... "One of the cornerstones of the system introduced by this law is constituted by the so-called rule of law, as a result of which administrative sanctions may be imposed only in cases defined by law."
"This I decide and establish, anything to the contrary notwithstanding."
It doesn't get much clearer.
All states are corporations. As a corporation, they are "registered" (ultimately) with the Holy SEE in Rome. - This then means that they are all under the Law of, the registrar. (Pope Francis, being the "boss".) seekingalpha.com
Always, only an opinion.
ps; Besides the Lawyers not ever wanting to make their chosen career path to become yet another 'horse and cart', industry.
(Yes Folks ...... They ain't ever gunna tell us.)
Do no Harm?
