  • Good to see you again, your Eminence. As you've heard, our differences between our churches have greatly divided our religious beliefs and rituals...
  • Yes, yes, I know. I hope we can finally settle this inconvenience. And I believe we both know who's church has the *Cough* obvious answers.
  • Follow me to our church.
  • 10 Minutes later...
  • ...And the icons! How dare you worship a statue of our Lord rather than pray to him himself! Have you gone mad? Our Mosaics in Constantinople is​ for beauty, not for prayer! And at least our patriarchs are the highest church official...
  • Why would any empire assign the emperor in charge of the church when he could make a decision out of his own greedy ways? I bet you use the church funds to expand your palace!
  • I'm glad we divided the church! Perhaps our lives as Catholic Christians will be better, as well as with the Orthodox.
  • Holy Church
  • *Grumble* Good luck with your church, Pope. I wish the best for our kingdoms.
  • *Sigh* Good day to you too, Emperor. I hope our creed stands tall...
  • The Byzantine Emperor has traveled far to meet up with the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. Rumors and discussion from their subjects have indicated that their beliefs varied greatly.
  • The emperor and the Pope headed into the church to settle their disputes. An argument breaks out quickly, and they are confused on what to do.
  • Soon, they calm down and come down to one decision: To split the church in half, leaving the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox church.
