For the popes of the nineteenth century reunion between the Churches still meant that the other Churches should submit to the authority of the see of Rome, despite the more moderate language used by Leo XIII. The only serious attempt at a more broad‐minded approach was made by Leo XIII and Pius X with regard to the Uniats of the East, whom they used to demonstrate that it was possible for Christians following an Eastern rite to be Roman Catholics. This arose from concern over the fate of Catholicism in the Russian Empire and the disintegrating Ottoman Empire, but was opposed by the Catholic clergy in the Balkans and the Levant, who thought Uniat rites a compromise and opposed the marriage of the clergy.
