1889-09-24 Utrecht Netherlands
Founded 24 Sep 1889, Utrecht (Netherlands), by those Catholic bishops who gave their assent to the Declaration of Utrecht of that date, as Old Catholic Church Association. This became the Union of Utrecht -- Union d'Utrecht, 5 Aug 1902, a title by which IBC is also known. Separation from the Roman Catholic had begun in the 18th century, Netherlands, on issues of authority and leadership. Latest Agreement between the Old Catholic Bishops, 12 Sep 1974; new Statute of the Old Catholic Bishops United in the Union of Utrecht, 2001.
Link national churches which at various times have separated from the Church of Rome, particularly those which refused in 1870 to accept doctrine of the infallibility of the Pope and his primacy of jurisdiction at the time of the 1st Vatican Council.
