    • This is a readings course that focuses on the beginnings of independent Catholicism from its roots, primarily in the Union of Utrecht, through its Old Catholic, independent sacramental movement, and more curren variants in the United States (with a nod to those abroad).
    • The main readings, with others assigned along the way, are –
    • Julie Byrne, The Other Catholics: Remaking America’sLargest Religion (Columbia University Press, 2018)
    • John P. Plummer, The Many Paths of the IndependentSacramental Movement (Apocryphile Press, 2006)
    • C. B. Moss, The Old Catholic Movement: Its Origins andHistory (Apocryphile Press, 2005)
    • A reading will be assigned, depending on the student’s particular interests, for additional study.
    • While this is, mostly, a historical treatment of the subject, the main sacramental, scriptural, and theological tenets of these movements will be briefly addressed as well.
    • The default format will be the student, with the instructor’s agreement, will read portions of the assignments; write a series of reflections on them; and teacher / student discussions follow.
    • The discussions, and instruction, may include virtual meetings; telephone conferences; and mailed correspondence.
    • In person attendance is not required. Permitted, only, by prior arrangement with instructor.
