Keywords: Canon Law Codification (1917-1983); Secular State and the Code's Role; Rationalisation; Hermeneutic Conflict; Demiurgic Conflict.

Starting with some more or less recent anti-juridical stirrings that affect some current images of canon law, the paper reflects on the 'meaning' of using 'positivist' codification techniques since the 1917 code. Comparison with modern secular states, secularisation, legal modernisation, updates, intertwined with the themes of 'holy' history and tradition, highlight the persistence of two key conflicts in the Church-modernity relationship: the hermeneutic conflict and the demiurgic conflict.
