Eastern Orthodoxy in Spain
This article does not cite any sources. (September 2010) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)
Spain is not a traditionally Orthodox country, as after the Great Schism of 1054 the Spanish Christians (at that time controlling the northern half of the Iberian Peninsula) remained in the Roman Catholic sphere of influence.
The number of Orthodox adherents in the country began to increase in the early 1990s, when Spain experienced an influx of migrant workers from Eastern Europe. The dominant nationality among Spanish Orthodox adherents is Romanian (as many as 1 million people), with Bulgarians, Russians, Ukrainians, Moldovans, and others bringing the total to about 1.5 million.
