Canon refers to a group of works considered to be central, vital, and legitimate in some field.
One of its more common uses is in describing which books are considered valid parts of the Bible, with various denominations using slightly different lists.
A canon is also a compositional form in classical music.
In the Anglican church a canon holds an honorary position as a well respected and trusted member of the church.
