The Episcopal Church follows the via media or "middle way" between Protestantism and Roman Catholic doctrine and practices: that is both Catholic and Reformed. The Episcopal Church traces its history from the Church of England and stresses its continuity with the early universal Western church.

Its history come from breaking away from the catholic church, but still hold on to some of their traditions.
