BRIEF HISTORY
OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH




 

HERESY OF MONOTHELITISM

        This heresy came out of an effort to unite opposing factions in the Orient and to settle the rift between East and Western Church. . .similar to the ecumenical movement today.   

        And, like all ecumenical attempts, it brought forth a series of documents which left the situation more confused than before.  During the controversy, the other side had the Pope arrested where he died in exile.  Then a schism between East and West followed.

        The Paulician heresy believed that Christ was an angel and not a man.  They did not believe in monastic life, the sacraments and the episcopacy.  They regarded themselves as Evangelical Christians and they preferred to be called Christians and not Catholics.
