How did the Church become what we see today? What ecclesiologies were the Reformers working with when Luther and Calvin wrote their momentous theologies? What paradigms were in place at the time of the English Revolution in the 1600s or later at the time of the Oxford movement and Broad Church movement of the 19th century? How have the legacies of these groups become evident in modern understandings of Church, denominations and communions?
The churches have lived through more or less a century of ecumenical endeavour, and the movement towards ecumenism began further back than that. We will consider the roots of the aspiration to unity, in the course of which the very idea of unity itself needs careful definition. Is intercommunion a better hope, or is full institutional unity the only defensible goal?
