[quote=Psalm45:9]Did I forget to mention that the Anglican communion can not agree on Consubstantiation.
"Consubstantiation is a theory which (like the competing theory of transubstantiation, with which it is often contrasted) attempts to describe the nature of the Christian Eucharist in terms of philosophical metaphysics. It holds that during the sacrament the substance (a technical philosophical term which refers to the fundamental reality of a thing) of the body and blood of Christ are present alongside the substance of the bread and wine, which persists. This view is often incorrectly attributed to the Lutheran church, which, although its writings often refer to the body and blood of Christ as “in, with, and under” the bread and wine, refuses to describe the Eucharist in terms of any philosophical theory.
In England in the late 14th century, there was a political and religious movement known as Lollardy. Among much broader goals, the Lollards affirmed a form of consubstantiation – that the Eucharist remained physically bread and wine, while becoming spiritually the body and blood of Christ. Lollardy was effectively ended with the execution of John Badby for heresy by burning at the stake.
In literature the conflict between Consubstantiation and Transubstantiation was satirically described in Jonathan Swift’s “Gulliver’s Travels” as war between Lilliput and Blefuscu."
There are many things that Anglicans disagree on, to be sure, including the nature of the Eucharist. You can find Anglicans affirming anything from “purely symbolic, memorial” , over on the uber-reformed side, to all 11 Canons of Session XIII of the Council of Trent, on the Anglo-Catholic side, and all points in between, both as to the what (Real Presence or symbolic) or the how (con/trans). Point is, there is no single Anglican position. No problem finding an Anglican who afirms consubstantiation.
But my question was not on the variablility of Anglicanism, but the assertion that it was Anglicans who originated the term and concept of consubstantuation. Certainly there were Lollards in England in the late 14th century. But there were no Anglicans.
As is stated in your quote, with respect to the the Lutherans, there is no Anglican doctrinal definition of the nature of the Eucharist, including consubstantiation
