Anglicanism
ANGLICANISM is a tradition within Christianity comprising the Church of England and churches which are historically tied to it or hold similar beliefs, worship practices and church structures. The word _Anglican_ originates in _ecclesia anglicana_, a medieval Latin phrase dating to the _ Magna Carta _ (1215) and before, which means the "English Church". Adherents of Anglicanism are called "Anglicans". The great majority of Anglicans are members of national or regional Anglican Churches, known as ecclesiastical provinces , which are part of the international Anglican Communion , which is the third-largest Christian communion in the world, after the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church . As the name suggests, the churches of the Anglican Communion are linked by bonds of tradition, affection, and common loyalty
