Whilst it is true that the Reformed Church of England had no exact parallel in Europe, it would be a mistake to assume that the two main branches of the European Reformation, the one Calvinist and the other Lutheran, produced two supranational Churches. On the contrary, both Calvinism and Lutheranism manifested themselves in different forms so that in effect every European nation with a Reformed Church had one with certain unique features. All these churches had some elements, doctrinal or liturgical or ministerial, in common and this included the Church of England which had some links with all the other Reformed Churches of Europe. The result of the Oxford Movement was the steering of the Church of England in a different direction, away from its links with continental Protestants, and into the position of a via media between Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, and Eastern Orthodoxy.

Keywords:   Church of England, Europe, Reformation, Oxford Movement, Protestantism, Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy
