Here are copies of the slides produced for the talk on Protestantism in 2016 by Karen Nockels


PROTESTANTISM

ROMAN CATHOLICISM

THE ORTHODOX CHURCH

These are the three major divisions of Christendom

For a 1000 years Catholicism and Christianity were as one.
The break or schism between the Church of Rome and other Christian faiths began with the split with Orthodox Christians in 1054 over questions of doctrine and the absolute authority and behaviour of the Popes.


For similar reasons in the 16
th century the Protestant Churches also went their own way.
