Examination for Holy Orders

   Title I, canon 6 of the Digest provides that "There shall be assigned to every Candidate for Priest's Orders three separate examinations." These examinations are made by the Bishop in the presence of two or more Priests. The three examinations are on the following subjects:
   I. The Books of Holy Scripture, in English, Greek and Hebrew.
   II. The Evidences of Christianity, Christian Ethics and Dogmatic Theology.
   III. Church History, Ecclesiastical Polity, the Book of Common Prayer, the Constitution and Canons of the Church and those of the Diocese to which the candidate belongs.
   The Examination for Deacon's Orders is on the Books of Holy Scripture, and on the Book of Common Prayer.
