The English Reformation was essentially an event within the history of Western Christianity. The theological and political debates in England as on the continent of Europe were debates conditioned by the history of Latin Christendom, the development of the papacy, the struggle between pope and emperor, and the failure of a quest for reform in the Conciliar Movement. Eastern Christianity was far away and for the most part under the Muslim domination of the Ottoman Empire. Yet the appeal of developing Anglican apologetic to the undivided Church of the early centuries and to the writings of the Fathers as interpreters of scripture, ensured that Greek patristic theology became one of the well-springs of the theology of the Caroline divines, and found remarkable expression in the sermons and devotions of Lancelot Andrewes.
