The new "Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches" (CCEO), which was issued by papal decree in 1991, replaced the ancient canons of the Church (i.e., the Rudder) for Eastern Catholics; my question is this:  Should the Rudder be restored to its proper place in Eastern Catholic life and praxis?

P.S. - It should be noted that the CCEO is nearly identical to the Latin Church's modern (1983) code, and was even written in Latin, and clearly reflects the theological views of the Roman Church.

Was the Rudder originally in universal use by the Eastern Catholics? What status (if any) does it hold now?

As far as I know,"The Rudder" (Pedalion) is not offical canon law in any eastern church, and it should not be that either. It is a handbook, a collection of canones made by  St Nicodemos of the Holy Mountain, and has tendencies  that belong to the redactor and his times. Orthodox churches are governed according to praxis founded on apostolic Tradition , expressed  through the ecumenical councils, other accepted  synods and the customs of the churches. The Rudder may help in that but does not be that!

The Rudder in English hasn't been printed in many years. Last time I checked, it was only available occasionally for resale on Ebay or Amazon.com. Any news of a republication of it?
