William DiPuccio, Ph.D — “Anglo-Orthodoxy”: Why some Episcopalians are turning to Eastern Orthodoxy for spiritual enlightenment.

Everybody who knows anything about Anglicanism knows that some people in this communion feel closer to Catholicism than to the Reformation and describe themselves as Anglo-Catholics.

Fewer, however, know that there is among Anglicans another group that manifest a lot of interest in Orthodoxy, without being actually Orthodox, and could be described thus as Anglo-Catholics.

In this article, William DiPuccio tries to explain what attracts these Anglicans towards Orthodoxy and why, maybe, they do not go all the way into it.
