What is the difference between Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox?
The most distinctive difference between Roman Catholicism and the Eastern Orthodoxy is that the Roman Catholics recognize the supremacy of the pope and the Eastern Orthodoxy doesn’t. The Eastern Orthodoxy has more than one leader, the Patriarchs of several Eastern European countries are all leaders of ‘their’ church.
Why did the Roman Catholic Church split?
The split between the Catholic Church and England occurred in 1534 after the pope denied King Henry VIII’s request for a marriage annulment. More than the result of this single cause, the break with Rome and the creation of a new English church was driven by a combination of personal greed, financial temptation and true religious dedication.
What is Orthodox Catholic?
The Western Catholic branch is also known as the Roman Catholic church, and the Eastern Catholic branch is also known as the Greek Orthodox church. The two parts make up the world Catholic church.
