episcopalian non-jurors in the C18th
Recently whilst revising for my 18th century module for examinations I came across some information that suggested the non-juror episcopalians attempted to approach the Orthodox Church for admittance. There was nothing further. I wonder if anyone knows anything about this?

Hi Louis

Yes, that was a very interesting period in Church history. They contacted the Greeks, and had to wait quite a while for replies. In the end the Anglican Church warned the Greeks off the non-jurors and it all fizzled out.

Here is an interesting paper on the subject of the Non-Jurors and the Eastern Orthodox.

I think that Abba Seraphim knows a lot about the Non-Jurors.

Best wishes

Peter
