Some roman catholic churches in the Constantinople begin using the roman catholic practices instead of following the Eastern orthodox practices .Ecumenial Patriach Michael Cerularis follows the eastern traditions.
I shall practice began using the Roman Catholic practices instead of following the Eastern Orthodox.
The Roman Catholic churches had the approval of the Pope Leo IX in Rome and refused.As in result, Cerularius shut the churches down.Then he wrote a letter attacking the practices of the west.The pope read the letter and ordered a return letter to be written to address the points made by Cerularius and defended the supremacy of the Pope.The pope then sent the letter with a delegation arrived in April 1054.
I am so furious,I am going to write a letter to the pope targeting him.I am defending the deregation.
The delegation did not like the way they were welcomed and walked out of the meeting with Cerularis after giving him the pope letter. Cerularis was so furious
I am so furious that the pope walked out in the meeting.
The Patriach ignored the delegation and refused to recognise their authority.Leo XI died on April 19,1054,and after the Patriach,Cerularis continued to refused to recognise their autority.The delegates entered the Catherdral of Hagia Sophia during a church ceremony and placed the letter on the main altar.
The letter contained the exocommunication of the Patriach Of Constantinople,Michael Cerularis.Cerularis burned the letter and then codemned the delegates.Then the Great Schism was official.
I am so angry how he exocommunicated me!
The two sides still communicated with each other after but during the Four Crusades ,Christians ,with the blessing of Rome,Constantinople and the Hagia Sophia.In After this, the break between the two sides rarely communicated and attempts to reconcile and failed.
