Please keep this timeline strictly to those matter that directly relate to ORTHODOXY and NOT the "Church of England" or the "Roman Catholic Church" - unless, those actions are directly classified as Orthodox pre-Schism.

Suggested "Table of Contents"

The existing headings for the periods in the Table of Contents do not really apply that well for this subject here; I think it would give better perspective to frame the Timeline of Orthodoxy in Britain under the major periods native to British history as such. I have put together this suggested format for the eras:

  • Roman Britian (43-410)

  • Medieval Period (410-1485)
  • Early British Kingdoms: Era of Celtic Missionaries (410-597)
  • Anglo-Saxon England: Foundation of the English Orthodox Church (597-1066)
  • Viking Age (793-1066)
  • Anglo-Norman Britain: Latin Continental Ecclesiology (1066-1154)
  • High Middle Ages: Plantaganet Era (1154-1485)

  • Early Modern Era (1485-1707)
  • Tudor Era (1485-1603)
  • Elizabethan Era (1558-1603)
  • Stuart Age: Civil War and Revolution (1603-1714)
  • Jacobean Era (1603-1625)
  • Caroline Era (1625-1642)
  • Interregnum: Commonwealth of England (1649-1660)
  • English (Stuart) Restoration (1660-1689)
  • United Kingdom of Great Britian (1707-1801)
  • Georgian Era (1714-1837)

  • Modern Era
  • United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (1801-1927)
  • Victorian Era (1837-1901)
  • Edwardian Era (1901-1910)
  • United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (1927-Present)

Some of the sub-era may be omitted perhaps, but all are recognized validly recognized names for periods in British history. I think doing it this way would provide a better historical context. Cheers, Angellight 888 18:15, May 25, 2009 (UTC)
