All Protestant denominations had their origins in the Catholic Church. Some of them broke directly from the Catholic Church, such as Anglicans and Lutherans. Others eventually split from the original Protestant denominations such as the Baptists, Puritans (Congregationalists), Methodists, etc., to form their own sects. The Orthodox Churches were part of the original Catholic Church but split with them in the Great Schism of 1054 due to doctrinal differences. However, members of the Orthodox Churches are not considered as Protestant denominations.

The Churches that came out of the Great Schism of 1054 both claimed to be the original Christian Church. One was the Roman Catholic Church and the other was the Orthodox Church, although this is a more general term for a group of Churches with more than one Patriarch.

All Churches believe that they are directly descended from one original Christian faith. Indeed, the Roman Catholic Church would say that it has existed since the very beginning of Christianity, as would the Orthodox. More realistically, it could be said that the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches came into being at the Great Schism of 1054 CE. Many earlier Christian Churches have long since ceased to exist, while others may still exist quietly in the Middle East, with only a few thousand adherents. The oldest extant major Christian Church is the Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt, which broke away from the Catholic-Orthodox Church in 451 CE.

Catholicism and Orthodoxy came first. The Protestant Churches began after when Martin Luther formed a new Church and from that example, sprang up more churches and caused a snowball effect that is why there are literally over a thousand denominations.

No as there were no churches then, they came later on.

The term "Roman" in "Roman Catholic" is to designate the Roman-Rite, the 'Western' Rite" of the Catholic Church. There are other "rites" in the 'Uniate' Churches, ie: Ukranian Catholic... the "catholic" Christian Church began at the time of Christ. The term "Roman" "Ukranian" etc. came into use at the time of the Reformation to define the different denominations within the splintered faith. -Roman Catholic Church was founded in 33 AD, though we had yet to get the name.

Protestant is not a religion. It is a category of religions. It refers to churches and denominations that PROTESTED and came out of the Catholic church when they found things that did not agree with the Bible. Some Protestant churches are Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, etc. If you want to know about traditions of one of those denominations, then try asking that question. They do hold on to a lot of the Catholic beliefs, traditions, and ceremonies, though.

As I understand, they both have priests. They also both wear vestments. When Christianity first came to us, it was not a strong monolithic entity, It was groups of people struggling to find the way to heaven. I.E. The People of God in Ephesus, or where ever? Later when some success came they were known as Churches, 'Particular, Churches,' in a particular place. In Britain it was the ,'Church' and in Rome it was known as the ,Suburbicarian Church of Rome, that is from Rome to the sea in the south and the three large Islands. They were national Churches and were joined together in unity through our membership of Christ! The Church in Britain was one of the ,'particular churches,' . It became known as the Ecclesia Anglicana , 'The Church of the English,' about the eighth century! By the middle ages the name was either the Church in England or the Church of England! But, the Church in England retained the Catholic faith and catholic Order and still subscribes to the faith once delivered to the saints,. Hence it is still a Communion of Catholics within the Body of Christ.

The Roman Catholic Church.

Churches and cathedrals are of course build by the (in this case Catholic) Church. The money came from the Church community, often by huge gifts of rich people. Like many old churches the cathedral of Antwerp has been renewed and expanded during the ages. That's why you see different style elements.

The one holy Catholic and Apostolic church is there for all as Christ intended when he said to the Apostles - go teach all nations. Many members of the Catholic church today came via other Christian denominations. Before being accepted into the Catholic church one must be familiar with the teachings (Magisterium) of the church and must go through a course known as the RCIA (roman catholic initiation for adults). A person must have been baptised in the trinitarian manner, or if not they will be baptised by the church and also confirmed. Confirmation received in other churches is not recognised by the Catholic church but most baptisms are if done in the aforementioned manner.

Roman Catholic is an epithet first commonly used in England after the protestant revolt to describe the Catholic Church. It is never used by the official Catholic Church. It's just Catholic, not Roman Catholic. In other words, the name "Roman Catholic Church" came from protestants in England during and after the protestant revolt in the 16th century.

The Catholic Church, as we know it today, originated from the Great Schism of 1054, when the Christian Church split to form the Catholic Church in the west and the Orthodox Church in the east. Both Churches claim to be the true, original Church, so naturally the Catholic Church says it was founded in Jerusalem, but it may be more accurate to say that the Catholic Church started in Rome.

Catholicism came first. Protestants broke away from the Catholic church.

In 1054 Christ's which (except for small groups of heretics and the Oriental Orthodox) was generally undivided and truly one split into the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church. The Orthodox would see the division this way: before 1054 there was just the Orthodox Church. After 1054 there was the Orthodox Church and the heretical church of the Patriarch of Rome, which would eventually call itself the Roman Catholic Church. The Romans would say that prior to 1054 there was just the Roman Catholic Church and then the Orthodox split off becoming a separate church. The way I, an Anglo Catholic, see it was that they both split from each other creating the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. Neither church really existed as a separate denomination before. The denominational terms came into existence because of the tragic split.

The Catholic Church in the 1500's was very wealthy and powerful. Much of the wealth came from rich families who bought positions in the church. The church also charged for baptism.
