The series on church history in the Middle Ages continues with a discussion of the first official split in Christianity between Roman Catholicism in the West and Orthodoxy in the East in 1054.
Do the Catholics have any historical basis for the papacy? How early did Catholicism arise? Are there any indications of Catholicism in the Bible? And how should we view the Catholic Church today, with its age-old heritage and a papacy that claims to originate with Peter himself? Drew looks into the history of the papacy in this episode of Wide Margins.
