comment What are the key differences between the Western and Eastern Christianity?
Catholicism is certainly the largest group in Western Christianity, but Anglicanism is far lower on the list.

comment What are the key differences between the Western and Eastern Christianity?
Concerning Scholasticism, I've read Luther's disdain of Aristotle. The problem is that the Jesuit Counter-Reformation used Aristotelian argumentation and early Lutherans responded in kind (hence all the Loci's from folks like Johann Gerhard), and much of Protestantism inherited this tradition with little understanding of its influence. Many today aren't even aware of the influence of Modernity and Postmodernity, let alone Aristotle, Plato (and neo-Platonism), etc. And even those who do address it tend to oversimplify it, arguing for some sort of pre-modern view (which is impossible).

@Lucretius hello, thanks for the detailed feedback. It is certainly a caricature, and a biased one at that (which I acknowledged). While I don't disagree with your assessments, I was addressing what Western Christianity has largely become today and the 'majority' beliefs, which tend to be independent semi-Baptist churches with little to no conscious connection to historical Christian thought older than the last 50-100 years. I am well aware of many Western Christians who do think through these issues, but sadly they are a minority.

comment What are the key differences between the Western and Eastern Christianity?
@deathlock pardon my late reply. A new question came along that you might be interested in, although currently my partial answer from this question has been duplicated. I recommend reading all the articles I linked to from my answer, though, as it will fill in a lot of detail. In sum, 1) yes, the differences still persist to this day; and 2) there are contrasts, which I addressed in my answer (specifically physitism).
