Roman Catholic Religion

The Roman Catholic Church is the most dominent christian denomination in the world, believing itself to be the true church of Jesus Christ on earth. It is headed by the pope. The term Roman Catholic is a 19th-century British coinage and serves to distinguish that church from other churches that are Catholic. Roman Catholics are seen as Christians in communion with the pope. Roman Catholicism also places a high value on human reason and uses a later form of text (Nicene Creed) which states that the Holy Spirit comes from the Father and the Son (known as filioque).
