Anglicanism is a Christian denomination rooted in the beliefs and practices of churches which either have historical connections with the Church of England or maintain a liturgy compatible with it. The word Anglican originates in ecclesia anglicana, a medieval Latin phrase dating to at least 1246 meaning the English Church. Adherents of Anglicanism are termed Anglicans. The great majority of Anglicans are members of churches belonging to the Anglican Communion. However, there are a great variety of non-affiliated Anglican churches, most notably the Continuing Anglican Churches.
