The fact that the division of Christianity in Europe into Orthodoxy and Catholicism reflected not only dogmatic contradictions and disputes about the supremacy of Constantinople and Rome, but also differences in the social structure of the continent, due to different options for organizing property and power in the west, east and southeast of the continent, was considered in the report “Confessional Differences of European Christianity as a Reflection of Civilizational Matrices in the History of the Continent” by Yakov Grigoryevich Rier, Professor of the Department of History and Philosophy of the Mogilev State University named after A. A. Kuleshov.
