. 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 siginficant 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.
