Catholicism

From Issuepedia

Overview

Catholicism is the branch of Christianity which has remained loyal to the Pope in the face of a number of major historical schisms, including Protestantism (started by Martin Luther) and Anglicanism.

Catholicism is officially (and by definition) governed by the Catholic Church.

Episcopalianism is probably the nearest thing to a non-Papal Catholicism: it shares many of the same rituals and items of doctrine but is independent of the Catholic Church.
