PONTIFICAL ORTHODOX OLD CATHOLICISM

An Ancient and Modern Ethno-Religious Minority

IMPERIAL ROMAN CHURCH
GALLO-RUSSO-BYZANTINE CATHOLICATE
ANGLICAN PATRIARCHATE OF ROME
STATO PONTIFICIO ROMANO



The historic representative of over 400 million people worldwide, the Stato Pontificio Romano, Imperial Roman Church, and its various components that comprise the modern expression of ancient Pontifical Orthodox Old Catholicism is now a worldwide ethno-religious minority. Its ethnic roots are Latin, Germanic, Central European, and Eastern European. Its religious roots are Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Gallican, Syrian, Anthioch, Chaldean, and Armenian. Diverse ancient ethnic and religious lines converge to create a unique community today. In terms of modern countries, it is associated primarily (though not exclusively) with the heritage of Italy, Spain, Germany, Russia, Greece, Syria, and Armenia. 

According to the sociologist Louis Wirth (1945), a minority group can be defined as “any group of people who, because of their physical or cultural characteristics, are singled out from the others in the society in which they live for differential and unequal treatment, and who therefore regard themselves as objects of collective discrimination.” Unfortunately as is so often seen today, the concept of "minority" status is associated with subordination and discrimination. In many cases, minorities are small groups. One indeed need not be a numerical minority, for there are examples of large groups that are nevertheless supressed or exploited by those currently in power.

Today the members of the various parts of the Imperial Roman Church move forward in faith to preserve their heritage and religion, both for the benefit of the world today and for future generations. As an organisation and as an ecclesiastical government, the Church works to end discriminatory and exploitative practices against all marginalised populations around the world.

 


Il Patriarcato Anglicano (Chiesa Romano Cattolica di Rito Anglicano) � una sovranit� ecclesiastica per diritto di Roma con un governo indipendente a stato consultivo speciale col Consiglio Economico e Sociale delle Nazioni Unite. Inoltre, discendiamo dalla Sede di Utrecht, a cui fu concessa l'autonomia nel 1145 da Papa Eugenio III e confermata nel 1520 da Papa San Leone X nella Bolla Debitum Pastoralis, questo diritto divenne noto come Privilegio Leonino. Come l'unico successore di Papa San Leone X e successore temporale di San Pietro Apostolo in Italia ed in Britannia, il Patriarcato � pienamente cattolico e detiene la stessa autorit� canonica della Comunione Romana (Vaticano). Il Patriarcato � il successore ecclesiastico di Roma temporale, il patrimonio temporale dell'Impero Romano rivendicato storicamente di diritto del papato. La successione pass� al Patriarcato dopo Benedetto XVI per diritto di Roma e Firenze, col Papa-Principe e Patriarca Anglicano di Roma con autorit� papale come successore temporale di San Pietro, e il Papa-Vescovo di Roma come successore spirituale di San Pietro e de facto sovrano dello Stato della Citt� del Vaticano. Anche se amministrativamente indipendente, la Sede Patriarcale abbraccia come fratelli gli altri organismi cattolici e anglicani, come la Comunione Romana corrente (comunemente come la Chiesa Romano Cattolica), l'Ordinariato Anglicano, e la Comunione Anglicana. La Chiesa Romana Imperiale, il Patriarcato Anglicano e le chiese dei vescovi riconosciuti dal patriarcato. Anche se amministrativamente indipendente, la Sede Patriarcale abbraccia come fratelli gli altri organismi cattolici e anglicani, come la Comunione Romana corrente (comunemente come la Chiesa Romano Cattolica), l'Ordinariato Anglicano, e la Comunione Anglicana.

I governi delle moderne repubbliche di Italia, Germania, Francia, Svizzera, e gli Stati Uniti, e dei moderni regni di Gran Bretagna e Spagna, cos� come l'Unione Europea non sono affiliati al governo dello Stato Pontificio in esilio.

The Anglican Patriarchate (Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church) is an ecclesiastical sovereignty by right of Rome with an independent government in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. Additionally, we descend from the See of Utrecht, which was granted autonomy in 1145 by Pope Eugene III and confirmed in 1520 by Pope St. Leo X in the Bull Debitum Pastoralis, this right becoming known as the Leonine Privilege. As the sole successor of Pope St. Leo X and temporal successor of St. Peter the Apostle in Italy and Britain, the Patriarchate is fully Catholic and holds the same canonical authority as the Roman Communion (Vatican). The Patriarchate is the ecclesiastical successor to temporal Rome, the temporal patrimony of the Roman Empire claimed historically by right of the papacy. The succession passed to the Patriarchate after Benedict XVI by right of Rome and Florence, with the Papa-Prince and Anglican Patriarch of Rome with papal authority as temporal successor of St. Peter, and the Pope-Bishop of Rome as spiritual successor of St. Peter and de facto sovereign of the Vatican City-State. Although administratively independent, the See embraces as brethren other Catholic and Anglican bodies, such as the current Roman Communion (commonly referred to as the Roman Catholic Church), the Anglican Ordinariate, and the Anglican Communion. The Imperial Roman Church is defined as the Anglican Patriarchate and the churches of all Bishops recognised by the Patriarchate. Although administratively independent, the See embraces as brethren other Catholic and Anglican bodies, such as the current Roman Communion (commonly referred to as the Roman Catholic Church), the Anglican Ordinariate, and the Anglican Communion. The New Roman Communion is defined as the Anglican Patriarchate and the churches of all Bishops recognised by the Patriarchate. The governments of the modern republics of Italy, German, France, Switzerland, and the United States, and of the modern kingdoms of Great Britain and Spain, as well as the European Union are not affiliated with the Stato Pontificio government in exile.
