Emerge? They started emerging in around 33-70.
Right: and in good Apostolic fashion, consensus was nearly impossible to achieve.
We've been struggling with it ever since: the west in the wider world of peoples: the east in their little ethnic enclaves.
Yes, the Vatican went wherever the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisistions could stamp out the local languages and make them adopt Latin and its derivatives.
But Russia alone did a good job matching, without stamping out the locals:
it doesn't show the expansion of the Patriarchate of Moscow into California
nor the Church of Japan.
and we'll leave out the North Pole
and the south pole
And then there's the Pope (the real and original one) of All Africa, whose Holy Synod has bishops from Cape to Cairo.
and without a single empire taking up the sword to spread its creed.
and the Patriarch of Antioch, and All the East (that is, as far east as India), etc. etc. etc.
I am amused by the fact that you think cramped, wizened, philetic lungs are somehow healthier than the lungs of the one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
those cramped, wizened philetic Latin lungs are nowhere as healthy as the lungs of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church connected to a myriad of tongues..
