"The pages of this book are intended to give a concise presentation of the facts which I consider essential to the understanding of the history of the division of the great Churches of the East and the West. We usually leave the narration of the controversy to the theologians - not unnecessarily: for the field battle into which both ecclesiastical leaders are thrown is bounded by the "space" of doctrine and religious custom. But wars do not begin on the battlefield; and, just as it would be unwise to entrust the history of war to soldiers alone and of its causes, so it is useful to examine the schism from a perspective that is not purely theological.My aim is to show that the Schism was not primarily due to differing views on the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit or the Eucharistic Bread, but had its causes in the combination of political events, with the prejudices and animosity which they gave rise to, and t of the growing divergence on fundamental ideological issues, which became known to the general public through these political events."
