Orthodox Schism

This two part lecture will explore a tragedy which is perhaps greater than the Protestant Reformation - the Orthodox Schism.

This is the event that, while it can officially be traced back to the year 1054, was actually concretized over the next 150 years into the situation as it stands today. Its roots however cross into multiple areas of civilization; culture, language, geography, and political power. What will it take to reunite the Catholic and Orthodox Church so "that they may all be one” as Jesus prayed on his way to the Garden of Gethsemane?
