(p.1) 1 Introduction
East and West: The Making of a Rift in the Church

Henry Chadwick

Oxford University Press

Christian history is scarred by splits — between Chalcedonian and Monophysote, or between Roman Catholic and Evangelical Protestant, or between Lutheran and Calvinist or between High Calvinist and Arminian. But the greatest Christian split has between East and West, between Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox. Divergences have occurred and are still alive between those for whom a sustained worldwide unity in a single communion is possible and those for whom the necessarily limited apprehension of one man offers too narrow a basis for whom the common mind of a universal Church has to have a more conciliar and collegial expression.

Keywords:   Roman Catholic, Chalcedonian, Monophysote, Evangelical Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, divergences, universal Church
