The text intends to deepen the reflection on the dialogico-relational model of law, developing the dialogic narration of the facts offered by the parties during the course of the contradictory process, with particular regard to the field of canon law. The process is configured, in fact, as a “three-dimensional space” within which a particular relationship is structured between the parties, such as to favor the search for the hermeneutical “medium” of the search for truth. The proper tools of due process allow a further development of this perspective, guaranteeing comparison and openness to dialogue.
