This chapter charts the transformation that has taken place in evangelical attitudes towards the Roman Catholic Church, from a relationship initially marked by competition and conflict, to one characterized by a growing sense of mutuality in the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Using three chronological snapshots, early evangelicalism (c.1730-80), the nineteenth century 'Protestant Crusades' (c.1830-80), and the era of the new evangelicalism, Vatican II and the culture wars (c.1950-2000), the chapter traces the long-term developments in evangelical-Catholic relations.
