Hello my people of the empire, I am the pope of my religion Roman Catholic the most powerful of them all. I rule over you all and only God is above me.
Hello patriarch, earlier today I ran into the pope and he told me that his religion was the most powerful.
Well, many people have different opinions but I speak the truth when I say that Eastern Orthodox is better.
This part of the religion is more important!
No! This part of the religion is more important!
The Great Schism was a split between the Roman Catholic church into two religions. The religions were Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic. There was a big political impact such as people disagreeing with the pope, which caused political conflict.
The two different religions caused much disagreement between everyday people. Popes and patriarchs are both trying to convert people and convince them of why their religion is the best. There was a big political impact such as how just like in politics there are two main sides, that was the same case because both sides thought they were better when really the were the same.
The one religion split into two because of the disagreement between the pope and the patriarch. Both thought they were more important than the other. This disagreement lead to the common people disagreeing with each other. Because they could not agree on anything, the religion split into Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox.
