Anglican stuff
  • On Apostolicæ Curæ and the Dutch touch from the Anglo-Papalist priest who named the latter, Fr Hunwicke. This has started a lively e-mail exchange that Dr Tighe has forwarded to me. Filtering out the rudeness (‘the make-believe priest wrote...’), the short version is even though Pope Leo is right, Anglo-Catholicism especially Anglo-Papalism were possible thanks to imported Old Catholic orders (before the OCs turned more liberal like the Anglicans); the counter-answer from the Catholic churches is that even with the Dutch thing ex-Anglicans are never received in their orders. As much as I don’t like online apologetics (whence come nasty remarks like that quotation), point taken.
  • Common sense about church-property rows. Well done!
