Anti-Catholicism has been seen as one of the core characteristics of the evangelical movement. Surveying a wide range of Martin Lloyd-Jones’s printed sermons, this article traces the development and teases out the full extent of his anti-Catholicism. It argues that fear of a single united world church encompassing Rome lay behind much of Lloyd-Jones’s rhetoric in his controversial address to the National Assembly of Evangelicals in 1966. It furthermore suggests that the deep-rootedness of opposition towards Rome in the evangelical psyche, intellectual tradition and historical imagination meant that such a paradigmatic shift in attitudes towards Rome and Anglo-Catholicism within the movement was likely to disturb its larger unity.
