Fama Clamosa

Fama clamosa

(general bad report), in the Scottish ecclesiastical law, is a ground of action before a presbytery or synod against a minister or member of the Church, founded on common report, and not a charge by accusation. If the rumor, or flama clamosa, be general and hurtful, the court can investigate it without any accuser, for the vindication of the oharacter of the Church and of the court, and with a view to the preservation of good morals in the community. SEE HILL, Church Practice, page 49.
