The history of the Greek Orthodox Church is so great and vast, it is even said that it was established while Jesus and his Apostles were alive. It was in 1054 when the Orthodox church split from the Catholic Church, this was when the Greek Orthodox Church became what we now know it as today. Though it is often contested by many, Greek Orthodox Christians believe that the Orthodox Church was the church established by Jesus Christ himself.

It isn't "said to have been established when Jesus and his Apostles were alive". It actually WAS set up by Jesus and his Apostles, and that is confirmed historically. The Orthodox Church was founded on Pentecost, which is documented in the Bible. And the split in 1054 didn't create the Orthodox Church as it is today, it was created on Pentecost, which was much, much earlier than the Great Schism. The Great Schism was about something else. Some things to read:

During the eight centuries of Christian history, most of the major cultural and social events of the Christian church took place within the empire or its sphere of influence, so much of the traditions of the churches were adopted by people, which provided the basic laws of modern Orthodoxy. Christianity has much more significance in many areas of life, such as science, medicine, and even philosophy. Faith in God, by definition, makes a person better, because you can communicate with God and get answers to many questions. If you have only recently become believers, or you have any doubts, we invite you to our friendly First Church Love team. We spend time together on Wednesdays and Saturdays, while on Sunday we hold Worship and study the Bible.

48 years ago, Turkey invaded Cyprus

This is one of the saddest stories in Greek history. 48 years ago on July 15, 1974, Turkey invaded Cyprus and displaced and killed huge portions of the Greek populations and it continuously illegally occupies northern Cyprus to this day. To this day, there are abandoned Greek homes in Northern Cyprus that people are never able to return to. There is still a UN occupied border between Cyprus and Turkish occupied Cyprus, which is one of the only UN occupied borders left in the world.

These are the best Ancient Greek plays to watch

Ancient Greek plays are amazing and so full of history. You can watch these plays live in Greece, or in some cases you can see renditions in other languages in other countries. I haven't seen many different plays available online unfortunately. In my opinion the best plays are Antigone, Odepus and Promotheus!! If you're able to go watch these plays in the Epidavros, I highly recommend it.

How Egypt influenced Ancient Greece

Ancient Egypt and Greece hav had so much influence over each other, perhaps more than any other ancient civilizations. This article specifically focuses on the impact of Egypt on Ancient Greece.

Could the Parthenon marbles be returned to Greece?

There is finally some hope in the constant and ongoing battle to return the person on marbles from the United Kingdom to Greece. A new chairman has declared that there is a deal to be done in terms of the marbles. Many are very hopeful that this might be pointing to a potential return, but others have given up hope in this battle. personally, this is something that I would love to see. There are so many artifacts from around the world that are stolen and still being housed in museums in the United Kingdom. The right thing should be done, and the marbles should be returned, as should every other stolen artifact.
