Anglicans and the Vatican launch new round of world talks

Posted: Friday, February 02, 2001

LONDON (AP) -- A new round of international talks on doctrinal unity has been established between the 77 million-member Anglican Communion and the Vatican. Begun in 1970, the negotiations have addressed disagreements over papal authority and women priests, among other matters.

The newly organized 10-member Anglican-Roman Catholic Working Group will be led by Roman Catholic Archbishop John Bathersby of Brisbane, Australia, and Anglican Bishop David Beetge of Highveld, South Africa.

U.S. members of the group are Catholic Archbishop Alexander Brunett of Seattle, Wash., and Episcopal Church Bishop Edwin Gulick of Louisville, Ky.
