What was 1 reason the Catholic Church divided into the Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic Church?
It happened during the Schism of the East which was in some members of the Church disagreed with the Church's teachings and split and made their own church. The Catholic Church does not recognize Eastern Orthodox as true Catholics because they do not follow Rome.

The Schism of the East
The estrangement and severance from the Holy See of what is now called the Orthodox Eastern Church was a gradual process extending over centuries. After a number of minor schisms the first serious, though short, break was that of Photius; from then on tension between East and West increased, and the schism of Cerularius occurred in 1054. From then on the breach gradually widened and has been definitive since 1472. There was a formal union from the 2nd Council of Lyons in 1274 until 1282, and a more promising one after the Council of Florence from 1439 to 1472. After the capture of Constantinople it was in the Turkish interest to reopen and widen the breach with the powerful Roman church; the patriarchates of Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem were dragged into this policy, Russia and the Slav churches stood out the longest of any: none of these churches, except Constantinople itself in 1472, formally and definitely broke away from the unity of the Church. But in the course of centuries the schism has set and crystallized into a definite separation from the Holy See of many million people with a true priesthood and valid sacraments. The origins, causes and development of the schism are matters of much complication, still not fully unraveled.

Separation of the Christian Churches of the East from unity with Rome. The schism was centuries in the making and finally became fixed in 1054, when the Patriarch of Constantinople, Michael Cerularisu (died 1059), was excommunicated by the papal legates for opposing the use of leavened bread by the Latin Church and removing the Pope's name from the diptychs or list of persons to be prayed for in the Eucharistic liturgy. A temporary reunion with Rome was effected by the Second Council of Lyons (1274) and the Council of Florence (1439) but never stabilized.
Christianity can be divided into three parts: the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and Protestantism. The Roman Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodox Church split in the 11th Century. Protestantism was born from Reformation in the 16th Century and split from the Roman Catholic Church at that time.
ANSWER: Actually, there is the Eastern ORTHODOX Church and the Eastern Rite Catholic Church. The Eastern Orthodox Church is separated from (in "schism" with) The Catholic Church. The Eastern Catholic Church is a "Rite"/sect in full communion with the Catholic Church and the pope. The Roman Catholic Church is the Latin Rite. Both are part of The Catholic Church. The Eastern Orthodox Church is not, technically, part/in communion with the Catholic Church. They do not…
The catholic church is sometimes considered the collection of churches that developed out of the Great Schism (namely, the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church). Although I have never heard someone use the term "catholic orthodox church," I would consider it to be referring to the Eastern Orthodox Christian religion.
There were two main churches: Roman Catholic and Orthodox. - UPDATE - Actually there were three main churches at the time, the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church and Oriental Orthodox Church. The Oriental Orthodox Church was the first church to break away from the Orthodox Church (Eastern Orthodox Church) in 451AD followed by the Roman Catholic Church in 1054AD.
There are Eastern or Byzantine Rite Catholics but they are in full union with Rome as opposed to the Eastern Orthodox Churches which are not. There was a brief period in the 20th century, when a separate Orthodox Church broke away from the Eastern Orthodox Church in America and formed the America Orthodox Catholic Church. But it was yet another splinter of an already splintered Church. orthodox (small "O") means right belief, and thus is…
What was the name of the event that split the Christian Church into Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic?
In the end of the middle ages, the Church had divided into the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church (with other branches belonging to neither but considered Orthodox). The Schism in the West had weakened the Roman Catholic Church. The beginnings of Protestantism had already appeared with the teachings of John Wycliffe and Jan Hus.
The term "catholic" is claimed by both the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church. The Roman Catholic Church includes all the Churches that accept the authority of the pope in Rome, including certain Eastern Churches. The Eastern Orthodox Church does not accept the authority of the pope in Rome. The pope is the spiritual leader of all Christians. However, the Protestants and Orthodox do not recognize that leadership.
That's a bit difficult to explain. There was one church called 'The Catholic Orthodox church" it split into Orthodox and Catholic. However there are two Orthodox churches which both preserve the ancient teachings and traditions of the original church. Except have a different view of the divintiy of christ. The Eastern "Oriental' Orthodox church believes that christ has two natures but united while the Eastern Orthodox church believes that chirst has two natures but seperate…
The Catholic Church and The Orthodox Church are divided, primarily, over the role of the Bishop of Rome (the pope) as the authoritative successor of St. Peter. Within The Catholic Church, proper, there is the Latin Rite and the Eastern Rite. There is no theological division between these two rites within The Catholic Church.
The head of the Catholic Church was the pope. In 1054, the Catholic Church divided into the Roman Catholic Church, headed by the pope, and the Eastern Orthodox Church, headed by the patriarch of Constantinople. There were many other churches as well, through the entire time, but they were small, and varied in their leadership.
You have your wording incorrect. There is Eastern Orthodox, and Eastern Catholic. Both are different Churches. Eastern Orthodox: The Eastern Orthodox Church was once one Church along with the Roman Catholic Church until the Great Schism in 1054. After 1054, they have been two separate Churches. The difference easiest to recognize is their view of the Bishop of Rome (the Pope). The Roman Catholic Church believes that the Bishop of Rome has the final say…
In the Roman Catholic Church have there been any ordinations of a female deacon in eastern Canada or was this the Eastern Church?
This question assumes there was one Christian religion, and was probably asked seeking the answer that this was the Catholic Church. There was no single Christian religion. The Church has always been divided both by organization and by belief. There have always been Churches that were orthodox but not part of the Catholic Church, including the Coptic Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and Celtic Christian Churches. There have also always been strong heterodox or heretical sects, such…
The Catholic Church was split in 1054 in the East-West Schism, into the Roman Catholic Church, in the West, and the Eastern Orthodox Church. The reason for this split was a disagreement over what authority the pope had in eastern dioceses. Put simply, the Western Church held the pope was a ruling authority, but the Eastern Church would only accept the pope as a symbolic authority. You should remember that there were other Churches aside…
Most medieval Christians were Catholic and the head of the Catholic Church was the Pope. Popes were usually located in Rome, but there were times when they were in residence elsewhere. The head of the Eastern Orthodox Church, which was divided from the Roman Catholic Church in 1054, was in Constantinople. There were other church sects but they were much smaller.
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…
The Catholic Church has had several Eastern Rites for most of her history. In the eleventh century, most of the Eastern Rites split in two, which half of each Rite remained with the church and half forming the new Orthodox Church. Thus the Greek Orthodox Church has the same liturgy as the Greek Uniate Church, but they are no longer in communion with Rome. Nearly all of the Eastern Rites did this, although I do…

The eventually lead to the split between the Eastern Orthodox church and the Western Catholic Church?
Although they ended up speaking many languages, the official language of the Eastern Orthodox Churches was mostly Greek, although there have always been others: Serb-Croatian, Aramaic, etc. (Remember there is no "one" Eastern Orthodox Church) The Catholic Church's official language has been Latin since the fourth century.
Eastern Orthodox members would say that it originated in Jerusalem, when Jesus made St. Peter the head of His Church on earth. It's historical administrative center is in Istanbul, Turkey, which long ago was called Constantinople, but it doesn't have a pope, like the Roman Catholic Church. Greek Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox, Russian Orthodox are all part of the Eastern Orthodox Church.
