Eastern Orthodox Church

Eastern Orthodox Church, one of the 2 major branches of the Christian Church. From the apostolic age a natural distinction arose between the Greek-speaking church of the eastern Roman empire and the Latin-speaking church of the west. The Eastern Church developed its own liturgical traditions. It became a family of orthodox churches, finally breaking with Rome in the Great Schism of 1054.
