Anglicans and the Eastern Church

(p.37) Chapter 1 Anglicans and the Eastern Church
J. M. Neale and the Quest for Sobornost


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the Anglican approaches to the Eastern Church during Neale’s time. The discussion helps place Neale’s activities in the larger context of 19th-century Anglo–Catholicism, where his influence is most apparent. Neale’s interest in the Eastern Church developed in the years following his departure from Guildford in 1842. When most Anglo–Catholics were turning to Rome, Neale and others like him, such as William Palmer and Alexei Stepabovich Khomiakov, turned to the East. Anglican approaches to the Eastern Church in the early 19th century had been cautious and reserved. On the Anglican side, the growing movement grew out of the branch theory of the Church, and through the work of those like Palmer and later Neale — allowed the contemporary debate on Catholicity and the Church to be seen in a broader perspective.
