Which religions was probably practiced by people in the Byzantine Empire?

AnswerGreek Orthodoxy AnswerThe name of the religion practiced in the Byzantine Empire was Eastern Orthodoxy. AnswerPrior to the Great Schism of the eleventh century, the Byzantine Empire was Catholic, and nominally under, or at least aligned with, the Church of Rome. After that point, it was on its own, and called Eastern Orthodox. There were other Churches also called Orthodox, as the Oriental Orthodox and Coptic Orthodox were. They are not the same and should not be confused with each other. The Eastern Orthodox Church is often simply called Orthodox, which obscures its relationship with other Orthodox Churches. The Greek Orthodox Church is part of the Eastern Orthodox Church, but in Byzantine times the distinction possibly did not exist.There are some links below.The "Eastern Orthodox" branch of Christianity was the main religion of the Byzantine Empire

When was the Orthodox Church invented.?

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. However,they both are the original church and have not changed the apostolic traditions. So the Roman Catholic Church and Orthodox Churches are equally old since they were both founded by one of the apostles,however the Orthodox church stayed true to the original churches beliefs and traditions. But they became referred to as "Orthodox" in 451 AD (Eastern "Oriental' Orthodox) and in 1054 (Eastern Orthodox)
