Abstract
This essay focuses on the multinormativity (diversitas legum) of the Ecclesiastical State, perhaps the most complicated legal system of the early-modern period.

Such multinormative environment is studied in two contexts: legal education and legal practice; the first in a lecture on the differentiae between canon and civil law by G.P. Lancellotti (1573), and the second in an account of the sources of law given by G.B. De Luca (1670s).
