Factual inaccuracy[edit]

"It is, therefore, unsurprising that, as the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches began to define their administrative structures"

At the time of the the collapse of most of the western Roman Empire, there was no such thing as the "Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches". There was Christianity. In any event, the term 'catholic' meant, at that time the universal church, the true meaning of the word 'catholic'. To identify "Catholic church" in this context as the current Roman Catholic Church (by contrasting it with the Eastern Orthodox church from which Rome was to break - or the other way around, depending on ones views of Romes schism with the Pentarchy) is historically inaccurate.--jrl 13:02, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
