- This article is regarding the pre-Schism Orthodox Church of Rome. For the post-Schism body, see Roman Catholic Church.
The Church of Rome was part of the ancient Pentarchy and the only apostolic see founded in the West. Until roughly 1054, the usual center-point for the Great Schism, the Church of Rome was in full communion with the rest of the Orthodox Church.
