With the notion of Receptive Ecumenism in mind, but adopting an approach more akin to fundamental theology, this chapter considers the relationship between Catholicism and Protestantism — understood as two principles — and offers a few reflections on Anglicanism within this context. It argues that the principle of comprehensiveness was doubtless helpful and good, but should not be overdone.
