Catholic Answer
Catholicism was started by Our Blessed Lord, Jesus Christ, in Jerusalem, around 33 A.D. Its beginnings were all through His ministry, particularly when He made St. Peter head of His Church, see St. Matthew Gospel 16:17-19, and then the Catholic Church was born from His side as He hung on the cross and was pierced with the lance. Then it was shown to the world on Pentecost when Our Blessed Lord sent the Holy Spirit on the infant Church. Note: for those who ask about "Roman Catholicism." There really is no such religion, the phrase "Roman Catholicism" came about in England after the protestant revolt, it was a not very nice slur on Catholicism, that has been used in the English speaking world for so long, that even some Catholics think of themselves as Roman Catholic!

The Roman Catholic Church, to give the Catholic Church its full name as used by the Vatican, almost by definition began in Rome. Up until the Great Schism of 1054, there was only one Christian Church of any significant size, at least in the Roman Empire. The Great Schism resulted in the Roman Catholic Church in the west and the Orthodox Church in the east.

Catholicism means Christianity as practiced by Catholics. Catholicism simply means "Universal".


Jesus Christ did not start Roman Catholicism because Catholicism is a blend of synthetic paganism (that's from what belief all their superstition comes from,) and some Scriptural teaching but the Scriptural too often takes a back seat to their paganism which is more promoted by the Vatican than their faith. Jesus was crucified by the religious leaders of the day and there is nothing new under the sun. So it was in the beginning so shall it be in the end. Jesus repudiated religious leaders and put them to shame with his wisdom and command compared to theirs and this is why they hated them. Today the RCC still stands for power as they are the richest corporation on Earth. They do not feed the poor but do the opposite of what Christ instructed of his followers to not build storehouses for their wealth but to buy Jesus' gold.

HOWEVER, this was not the first use of the word to describe us, as Saint Ignatius of Antioch used it to describe the Church in a letter to the Smyrnaeans, a group of Christians in Smyrna, located in modern-day western Turkey.
