“Utrecht is the head-quarters of the Jansenists, a sect of dissenters from the Roman Catholic Church, who object to the Bull of Pope Alexander VII condemning as heretical certain doctrines of Jansenius, Bishop of Ypres. They scarcely exist in any number, except in Holland, where they are now reduced to five thousand.” —FROM THE PREFACE
The Old Catholic churches have branches—both official and unofficial—all over the world. They constitute one of the most interesting and diverse movements in Christian history, a movement worthy of greater visibility and academic attention. Here is the classic history of Old Catholic beginnings—the first comprehensive work of its kind in English, now back in print for the first time in decades from Apocryphile Press.
