Comment: Re: SHK 13.0476 Proto-Catholilcs? Proto-Prods?
I had no idea that, in 1066, there was any other Church but the
universal Catholic Church of Rome. Unless Sam is suggesting that
and Scandinavia were Eastern Orthodox...
He is probably suggesting that England had always been a bit of a
maverick church, and under Will the C they had acted less independently
of the papacy. They were certainly not a separate church, not even
before Augustine of Canterbury. However, they did have different ways,
and it may be accurate to say that they became more Roman (not more
"catholic") after William.
