I am Latin Rite Catholic, and I frequently hear about how the Roman Catholic Church burnt Lollard, Wycliffian, Hussite and Protestant heretics, and how it tortured thousands of people in the dungeons of the Inquisition. The Roman Catholic Church also sacked Constantinople, deposed the Greek Patriarch and established a Latin patriarch over his see. And so forth with the list of "crimes."
I am just curious if the Orthodox Church has had similiar accusations levied against it: like political wielding of power by the Patriarchs, collaboration with the communists, etc. When people speak of the "crimes" of the Orthodox Church, what usually comes up? Since I'm thinking of converting, I would really like to know everything about the Orthodox Church, including its certain unfavorable incidents. Thanks!
