Topic: Regular canons

  Canon (priest) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Originally, a canon was a cleric living with others in a clergyhouse or, later, in one of the houses within the precinct or close of a cathedral and ordering his life according to the orders or rules of the church.
One of the functions of the cathedral canons in the Roman Catholic Church is to elect a Vicar Capitular to serve during a sede vacante period of the diocese.
A canon is a member of the chapter of (for the most part) priests, headed by a Dean, which is responsible for administering a cathedral or certain other churches that are styled collegiate church.

Finally, communities of regular canons are fairly popular foundations, in part because they tend to require theadvowson or appropriation of churches instead of manors, and the bestowing of an ecclesiastical benefice is often cheaper for the donor than the provision of land [11].
