The Filioque
Question from Frankie on 2/17/2014:

I made this question before but I dont know if this was answered as I was on a Caribbean cruise trip at the time. Why if the Creed was written without the Filioque clause at the Council of Nicea it was added to the Creed in the Latin or Western Church starting at the Council of Toledo in Spain. It gradually was added in the Western Church until 1000 AD when the Popes made it mandatory in the Latin or Western Church. The Eastern Church was against the addition and it led to the East-West split in 1054.

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 3/26/2014:

Dear Frankie,

There is the Catholic Encyclopedia on line. It will give you all you want to know--and more.

Dr. Geraghty
