    One of the main issues between the Eastern and Western churches during the religious Schism was Rome's bishop claim to supreme theological authority.

    Eventually, the Western Church would go on to recognize Rome's Bishop as the Pope, while the Eastern Church would not.

    The Eastern Church has a less centralized structure, and there isn't a single figure with full theological authority.
