I'm sorry it's AsiaNews. I hope you'll be able to filter Vatican's POV.

The Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew I will attend Pope Francis's inaugural Mass. The Ecumenical Patriarchate Press Office informed AsiaNews about the decision, noting that this is the first time such an event occurs since the Catholic-Orthodox split in 1054, an important sign for Christian unity.

The ecumenical patriarch will be accompanied by Ioannis Zizioulas, metropolitan of Pergamon and co-president of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Roman Catholic and the Orthodox Church, as well as Tarassios, Orthodox Metropolitan of Argentina, and Gennadios, Orthodox Metropolitan of Italy.

How many times did the EP attend the enthronement/inaugural Mass of the bishop of Rome before 1054?

Bishop Siluan, the Orthodox bishop at Rome, won't be attending?

I suppose, 0.

I will be surprised if he won't.

Believe it or not but St. Peter's in Vatican City is actually the Patriarch of Constantinople's representation cathedral in Rome.  Or at least it was up until the 1000's or whenever someone with more history knowledge will tell us.  The pope's cathedral is St. John Lateran in Rome.

I wonder if the Pope Emeritus will be there.  Probably not - he might be more dressed up than the Pope.
