Until this time, all of Christendom existed under one body, but the churches in the East were developing distinct cultural and theological differences from those in the West. Tensions gradually increased between the two branches, and finally boiled over into the Great Schism ofalso called the East-West Schism. The Orthodox Church in the East had agreed to honor the pope but believed that ecclesiastical matters should be decided by a council of bishops, and therefore, would not grant unchallenged dominion to the pope.
The two branches remained on friendly terms until crusaders of the Fourth Crusade captured Constantinople in To this day, the schism has not been wholly mended.
By the third East-West - Schizma - Unity 2000 , the Roman Empire was growing too large and difficult to govern, so Emperor Diocletian decided to divide the empire into two domains—the Western Roman Empire and the Eastern Roman Empire, also known as the Byzantine Empire.
One of the initial factors which caused a shifting apart Lets Ride (Radio Edit) - The OJays - Lets Ride the two domains was language.
The primary language in the West was Latin, while the dominant language in the East was Greek. The churches in the divided Empire began to disconnect as well. The first little schism was over Arianism, a belief that denied Jesus to be of the same substance as God or equal to God, and therefore not divine. This belief was accepted by many in the Eastern Church but rejected by the Western Church.
Another little schism, the Acacian Schismhad to do with an argument over the nature of the incarnate Christ, specifically whether Jesus Christ had one divine-human nature or two distinct natures divine and human. One other little schism, known as the Photian Schism, occurred during the ninth century. The dividing issues centered on clerical celibacy, fastinganointing with oil, and the procession of the Holy Spirit.
Although temporary, these splits East-West - Schizma - Unity 2000 East and West led to embittered relations as the two branches of Christianity grew further and further apart. Theologically, the Les Coquettes de Porto-Rico - Yvette Horner - Best Songs Of Yvette Horner and West had taken separate paths.
The Latin approach generally leaned to the practical, while the Greek mindset was more mystical and speculative. Latin thought was strongly influenced by Roman law and scholastic theology, while Greeks comprehended theology through philosophy and the context of worship.
Practical and spiritual differences existed between the two branches. For instance, the churches disagreed on whether it was acceptable to use unleavened bread for communion ceremonies. Western churches supported the practice, while Greeks East-West - Schizma - Unity 2000 leavened bread in the Eucharist. Eastern churches allowed their priests to marry, while Latins insisted on celibacy. Eventually, the influence of the patriarchs of Antioch, Jerusalem, and Alexandria began to weaken, bringing Rome and Constantinople to the forefront as the two power centers of the Crime In Choir - Gift Givers. Since the main language of the people in the Eastern Empire was Greek, East-West - Schizma - Unity 2000 churches developed Greek rites, using the Greek language in their religious ceremonies and the Greek Septuagint translation of the Old Testament.
Roman churches conducted services in Latin, and their Bibles were written in the Latin Vulgate. During the eighth and ninth centuries, controversy also arose regarding the use of icons in worship. Byzantine Emperor Leo III declared that the worship of religious images was heretical and idolatrous. The filioque clause controversy ignited one of the most critical arguments of the East-West Schism.
This dispute centered around the Trinity doctrine and whether the Holy Spirit proceeds from God the Father alone or from both the Father and the Son. The Eastern Church insisted on keeping the original wording of the Nicene Creed, leaving the filioque clause out. Leaders in the East argued loudly that the West had no right to alter the foundational creed of Christianity without consulting the Eastern Church.
Furthermore, they felt the addition revealed underlying theological differences between the two branches and their understanding of the East-West - Schizma - Unity 2000. The Eastern Church thought itself to be the only true and right one, believing Western theology to be based erroneously in Augustinian thinkingwhich they considered heterodoxwhich means unorthodox and verging on heretical. Leaders on both sides refused to budge on the filioque issue.
Eastern bishops began accusing the pope and bishops in the West of heresy. Most contentious of all and the conflict which brought East-West - Schizma - Unity 2000 Great Schism to a head was the issue of ecclesiastical authority—specifically, whether the pope in Rome held power over the patriarchs in East-West - Schizma - Unity 2000 East.
The Roman Church had argued for the primacy of the Roman pope since the fourth century and claimed that he held universal authority over the whole church. Eastern leaders honored the pope but refused to grant him the power to determine policy for other jurisdictions or to alter the decisions of Ecumenical Councils.
At the time, problems sprang up in Southern Italy, which was part of the Byzantine Empire. Norman warriors had invaded, conquering the region and replacing Greek bishops with Latin ones. When Cerularius learned that the Normans were forbidding Greek rites in the churches of Southern Italy, he retaliated by shutting down the Latin rite churches in Constantinople. Their longstanding disputes erupted when Pope Leo sent his chief advisor Cardinal Humbert to Constantinople with instructions to deal with the problem.
Humbert aggressively criticized and condemned the actions of Cerularius. In response, Cerularius burned the papal bull of excommunication and declared the bishop of Rome to be a heretic.
The East-West Schism was sealed. Despite the Great Schism ofthe two branches still communicated with each other on friendly terms until the time of the Fourth Crusade. However, inWestern crusaders brutally sacked Constantinople and defiled the great Byzantine Church of the Hagia Sophia. Now that the break was permanent, the two branches of Christianity became more and more divided doctrinally, politically, and on liturgical matters.
An attempt at reconciliation took place at the Second Council of Lyon inbut the accord was flatly rejected by the bishops of the East. Not until more recently in the 20th century did relations between the two branches improve enough to achieve real progress in healing some of the differences. Dialogue between leaders led to the adoption of the Catholic-Orthodox Joint Declaration of by both the Second Vatican Council in Rome and a special ceremony in Constantinople.
The declaration recognized the validity of the sacraments in the Eastern churches, removed the mutual excommunications, and pronounced a desire for continued reconciliation between the two churches.
Now the third millennium of Christianity is at the gates. May the dawn of this millennium rise on a church which has full unity again. Every time we put behind us our longstanding prejudices and find the courage East-West - Schizma - Unity 2000 build new fraternal relationships, we confess that Christ is truly risen. Since then, relations continue to improve, but major issues remain unsolved. East and West may never fully unite on all theological, political, and liturgical fronts.
