CATHOLIC APOSTOLIC CHURCH


CATHOLIC APOSTOLIC CHURCH
   sometimes known as "Irvingites." This group was founded by Edward IRVING, (1792-1834, and originated as a CHARISMATIC group but soon developed LITURGICAL aspects similar to ROMAN CATHOLICISM and GREEK ORTHODOXY but with a strong emphasis on the imminent return of CHRIST. As a movement it had some success in the late nineteenth century before entering a period of slow decline. Today its influence is felt mostly among NEW RELIGIOUS MOVEMENTS in the Third World especially in Africa.
