Western Rite Orthodoxy existed within the Orthodox Church for around fourteen hundred years out of its total two thousand year existence. It was in orthodoxy for around three hundred years after the Great Schism, and it was on Mount Athos in a Western Rite monastery (one of the founding monasteries) Amalfion before and several hundred years after the Great Schism.
The Western Rite was authorised by the Holy Synod of Moscow specifically for reintroduction to the British Isles in 1870, and today it is in parish use in England and in our monastery here in Scotland.
We have the ancient pre-Schism Western Liturgy which was used (with some local variations) throughout the British Isles - the Liturgy of Saint John the Divine and we are specifically blessed to use that Liturgy.
