Surely you meant to say that it lasted decades.


Something bad happening twice does not strengthen the argument that it cannot happen or indeed that is did not happen both times.  Besides, I am in no position to judge what happened in history.  History is written by the victors.  I can however judge my own life experience.

I think it's a very valid point, to say that when a schism occurs you shouldn't expect it to be resolved just like that :snap fingers: (But I think Augstine Baker got a little carried away when he said that the Photian Schism lasted centuries. It started an ended in the 9th century.)
