Sindi Shkodrani HTY 310 Prof. Serguey Ivanov Fall 2014 THE GREAT SCHISM A cause and effect analysis Introduction The beginning of the millennium saw believers unified and united under the common faith of Christianity. Merely a millennium later, that unity seemed to have been broken and two main branches of the once unified Christianity had come to light. The factors that lead to this division are many, starting early on from the fourth century with the Council of Nicaea, as will be seen later which did unify the churches, but did not give an end to some of the theological debates that pursued.

In 1210, Genghis Khan invaded the Xi Xia kingdom and forced it to pay tribute.

When Russia defeated the Mongols, the tsar assumes the powers previously in the hand of the Grand Prince and expand it at the point that the system remained solid for many centuries. When the Russian revolution occurred in 1917 leading to the creation of the Soviet Union, the brief period of chaos was brusquely interrupted by the rise to power of Lenin and his successor Stalin which turned Russia into a communist dictatorship. Even after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the end of the cold war, Russia does not seem to have made significant progress in the development of a democracy or even have the intention to pursue this path.

Instead the evidence suggested a later Viking settlement. Due to little evidence of an earlier settlement it can be suggested that the Vikings had temporary settlements here, known as Longphorts, “a fortified ship harbour.” By the time the Vikings made a more permanent settlement, as Hurley mentions in his article, ‘Waterford’s Viking footprint’, the Vikings and the Irish had merged together by the conversion of many Vikings to Christianity and their integration into Irish society which was aided by inter-marriage between the Vikings and the native Irish, resulting in a culture that was influenced by the Vikings. While there is little archaeological evidence of the type of settlement the Vikings had or when such a settlement dated from, the name of the city, its strategic and convenient location near water so the Vikings could travel easily to and from establishing trading links, all these factors suggest Waterford was most likely discovered

Stephen died a year later, in 1154, and Henry took the throne as Henry II, ending two decades of conflicts of royalty.
