  1. That is certainly one way to look at it. The Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, Chrysanthos Notaras (1707-1731) attests to “the innovations of the Western Church, and the present new and recent monarchless monarchy and sinful sinlessness of his colleague (if I can call him such) in Rome, which the Holy Fathers of both East and West neither knew, nor even imagined, as they are novel and strange seeds, and inventions of the Western Church, sown and planted with a spirit of pride, and immoral arrogance, and having taken root for an extended time have brought forth rotten fruit.” (Dositheos of Jerusalem, Dodecabiblos, Books A and B, publication B. Rigopoulos, Thessaloniki 1982, pg 11)
