HISTORY of Christian Theology

Derived from a Greek term meaning “right belief” and also “right worship.” When the term is not capitalized it typically refers to teachings in Christian traditions that are not heretical. When capitalized it refers to the mainstream Christian tradition in the East that is also often referred to as Eastern Orthodox or Greek Orthodox because it was founded in the Greek speaking eastern half of the Roman Empire which later developed into the Byzantine Empire and then spread to the Slavic regions. Today, Orthodox Christians consist of about 3 percent of the world’s population with Catholics about 19 percent and Protestants about 8 percent.
