About the usefulness of employing the models of the Church in the study of canon law

This article originated in an effort to explain the usefulness of employing the models of the Church in the study of canon law. The article consists of three parts. The first one offers general approach to model as a tool for understanding the reality. The second part of the text is presenting some models of the Church. The last section of this reflection centers on R. Sobański's model of the Church as a mystery. Summing up, it can be said that among many models of the Church, Sobański's model can be successfully used in the realm of canon law.
