    The Great Schism During the late 14th century and the early 15th century there was a great division in the Catholic Church. The Papacy was becoming blurred.

This movement was first truly seen under Pope Gregory XI and his successor Pope Urban VI. Earlier Pope Urban V had moved the center to Rome

    Was the Great Schism a good thing? The Greek and Roman empires were two different and unique places to live. Even though they had many differences, they also had many similarities with one another. One of the biggest similarities between these two great empires was they both practiced the religion of Christianity. People may not know but they practiced different types of Christianity in these two empires. The Romans would practice in Catholic churches while the Greeks would practice in the Orthodox

    The Great Papal Schism The Great Papal Schism is also known as the Western Schism that lasted from 1378 – 1417, during which the papacy (the position itself) was in great divide between three popes in the Roman Catholic Church. This political upheaval within the Roman Catholic Church caused distrust of the western civilization towards the church. It began after the Avignon Papacy or the more commonly referred to, “Babylonian captivity of the papacy” which was when the papal court was moved to France

    After the 4th century when Constantinople emerged as a great capital and church center, tensions sometimes arose between its leaders and the bishop of Rome. After the fall of Rome to Germanic invaders in 476, the Roman pope was the only guardian of Christian universalism in the West. He began more explicitly to attribute his dominance to Rome's being the burial place of Saint Peter, whom Jesus had called the "rock" on which the church was to be built.

    further apart until they became the separate Roman Catholic and Eastarn Orthodox churches in an event called the Great Schism. A schism is a religious divide or conflict, and a great one would have great impact on the fate of its religion. A schism was already forming between the Pope and Patriarch, whose powers were unbalanced and views were not alike. What finally caused the Great Schism was the issue of ikons-images of the divine used in worship-and iconoclasm-the disapproval of that practice. The

    Amelia Kasgorgis Ms. Argue Mission March, 10 2015 The Great Schism The Great Schism of 1378 was caused when the papal court, which was based in Rome, elected an Italian Pope named Pope Urban VI. The French cardinals refused to accept the Italian Pope so they announced that his election was invalid and elected a new Pope, Pope Clement VII.

    The crises of the Catholic Church were the Great Schism. It started five months after Urban’s election of the thirteen cardinals, all but one of them French, formed their own conclave and elected Pope Clement, a cousin of the French king. The both of them insisted they had voted for Urban in fear of their lives, having been surrounded by a Roman mob demanding the election of an Italian pope. This became a scandal to Christendom, and the allegiance to the two papal courts divided along political lines

    Great post! Your forum is a very good read and I really enjoyed the sequential analysis given. I agree with you that the Great Schism is the separation of Christianity and the result of a dispute of authority.
