The thing exists. It's foundation legend is very old. That is ALL we know.


But... I thought Jesus founded the Church of England... haven't you guys heard the song?


(I'm hoping that this is sarcasm but if not,...)

Are we talking about the Anglican Church of England, or Catholic Archdiocese in England? The Catholic Archdiocese holds back to the 500's but Celtic Christianiy existed as early as the first century. The Anglican Church of England is founded by Horny Henry VIII

Heresies. Each and every one. The only Christian schisms are the Anglican Catholics (as opposed to the Anglican Communion which evolved from schism into heresy), the Roman Catholics, the Eastern Orthodox, and the Oriental Orthodox - perhaps, very tepidly, the Old (Utrecht) Catholics as well but I reserve the right for reconsideration of this as I increase my knowledge of their theological foundation. Each of the Protestants denominations, except for the Anglican Catholics (which seceded from the Roman Catholic Church due to political rivalries rather than dogmatic innovations (although the Church, later, ratified certain Protestant doctrinal innovations which were, even later still, repudiated or otherwise disregarded in order to bring the Church more in line with orthodox Christian doctrine), is heretical.

Protestantism is it's own religious approach to Abrahamaic faith. Completely valid and legitimate in its own way - absolutely beautiful in its own way, as well.



*I don't know why I wrote "Church of the East" when I clearly had, in mind, the Old Catholics. I need to eat.*

Can anyone tell me about the Hussite Church and it's relation to Catholicism/Orthodoxy/Protestantism? There seems to be a scarcity of information on the subject.

The Hussites have since evolved into what is today know as the Moravian Chuch. Like most Protestant groups, their are organized by nation rather than having a central structure, so it's hard to get a solid picture of their ecumenical relations. However, they tend to cooperate well with the Lutheran and Anglican Churches, as the three are very similar theologically. The three have been on a trend toward full communion for decades.

Given that discussion has paused briefly, and we're on page 499, this looks like a good moment to move to version IV - locked in preparation of the new thread.
