"British Orthodoxy"
#1
I keep seeing on various different places on the internet Orthodox Christians claiming that the Church in the British Isles was always "Eastern Orthodox;" especially during the so-called "Dark Ages" when Christianity was taking root among the various peoples of the British Isles. I know Eastern Christianity played a part in influencing Christianity in the British Isles, but I definitely don't see it as being strictly "Eastern Orthodox." I thought "Eastern Orthodoxy" was a term used to differentiate "the "Eastern Churches" from the "Western Church" after the Great Schism.

Although there were some minor differences in the way Catholicism and the liturgy-as well as the calendar-were "practiced" in the "Dark Age" British Isles, what people mistakenly call "Celtic Christianity" was not really all that different from the rest of Christianity at that time.

Is this just another wacky anti-western view espoused by Eastern Orthodox Christians on the internet or what?
