Imperial Roman Church is a modern Christian communion of ancient
origins. With its Apostolic heritage from Saint Peter the Apostle,
Saint Andrew the First-Called, and Saint Thomas the Apostle, and
traditions from both the western and eastern Christian Church and Roman
Empire, it represents a unique unification of the various branches of
the Christian Faith. Its members are described as Old Roman Catholic,
Old Catholic, and Pontifical Orthodox. The latter refers to Christians
of the Eastern Rite, Oriental Rite, or of other rites with Eastern or
Oriental Christian origins and customs that are in communion with the
Supreme Pontiff of the Imperial Roman Church. It is also of Roman/Latin
heritage. In fact, multiple Old Roman Catholic/Old Catholic
jurisdictions incorporate the concept of Orthodoxy, even including it
in their jurisdictional name. Pontifical Orthodoxy is pan-Roman,
spanning the original Roman Empire from west to east and extending
throughout all of the Christian world. It is at once western and
eastern, incorporating the rich and diverse heritage of the Christian
faith. Thus it follows the wish of Our Lord Ut unum sint – That all may be one.
The Church is headed by the Florentine-Roman Papa, Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicos as its Supreme Pontiff. The Papa-Catholicos is 266th in succession from St. Peter the Apostle as Prince of the Romans, 74th Grand Duke of Ruthenia, 142nd in Gallican-Antioch succession from St. Peter, 169th in Greco-Russian succession from St. Andrew the First-Called, and 116th in Syrian-Antioch succession from St. Thomas the Apostle.

The Stato Pontificio Romano constitutes an ecclesiastical sovereignty by right of Rome as heir to the Roman Empire with an independent government in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (as the Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church). Additionally, the church descends from the See of Utrecht, which was granted autonomy in 1145 by Pope Eugene III and confirmed in 1520 by Pope St. Leo X in the Bull Debitum Pastoralis. As the sole successor of Pope St. Leo X and temporal successor of St. Peter the Apostle, the Catholicate and Patriarchate are fully Catholic and holds the same canonical authority as the Roman Communion (Vatican). The Catholicate and Patriarchate are the ecclesiastical successor to temporal Rome, the temporal patrimony of the Roman Empire claimed historically by right of the papacy. The succession passed to the Catholicate after Benedict XVI by right of Rome and Florence, with the Papa-Catholicos of Rome-Ruthenia with papal authority as temporal successor of St. Peter, and the Pope-Bishop of Rome as spiritual successor of St. Peter and de facto sovereign of the Vatican City-State. Although administratively independent, the Apostolic See embraces as brethren other Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican bodies, such as the current Roman Communion (commonly referred to as the Roman Catholic Church), the Anglican Ordinariate, Eastern Orthodox Churches, and the Anglican Communion. The Imperial Roman Church is defined as the Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate, the Anglican Patriarchate of Rome, and the churches of all Bishops recognised by the Catholicate. The governments of the modern republics of Italy, German, France, Switzerland, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and the United States, and of the modern kingdoms of Great Britain and Spain, as well as the European Union and all other civil states, are not affiliated with the Stato Pontificio government in exile.
