    Do Anglicans generally accept Preterism as a valid eschatological view? If I recall, there is very little testimony from the Early Church that clearly affirms Preterism as it is generally taught. And, as a faith that teaches history as evidence that Christians were aware of these things, I'd think for someone to realize so late that these prophecies were fulfilled already in the past, long after they would've been relevant, is very dubious.

    The traditional Anglican view would be Augustinian on this, i.e., Amillenial, the default position of the Church from the end of the Roman Empire to the Reformation... while the puritans came out with all kinds of pre-mil, post-mil and other ideas, our Divines were quite disdainful of these newcomers with their crank ideas

    The Orthodox are Amillenial as well. The default position for the ancient Churches, Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Oriental Orthodox.
