I am a practicing Catholic with a strong love for my faith and a desire to knowledgeably defend it. When it comes to apologetics resources, it seems to me that the vast majority of books and websites present information with the intent of defending our faith against protestant arguments. That is all fine and good, but what about sources to help Catholics defend their faith against the arguments of the Orthodox? For example, their position on the papacy, who split from who, the filoque, etc. Does anyone have articles on websites or books I can review to really get into the nitty-gritty of our differences? I am particularily interested in the historical aspect.
Also, as a bit of a side issue (but related), does anyone know why and when did the Orthodox came to be called “Orthodox”? I mean, wasn’t the original Church referred to as the Catholic Church in the very early centuries or was that only a name used in the west? Were the Churches in the east always called Orthodox? I honestly don’t know. I’ve only heard the names Greek Orthodox and Russian Orthodox, etc.
Any information/links/books would be most helpful. Thanks!
