The Edict of Milan
The Christian Church struggled to survive for years. Rome declared war on the Church because they feared that it would take over all other Churches in Rome. Martyrs only made the Christian Church stronger. A man named Constantine had a vision from God that told him to embroid the shileds of the Christian Church with chi and rho. They won the war and Constantine thanked God for the victory. Constantine then became the western emporer. Him and the Eastern emporer came up with an agreement for tolerance of all religions. The Christian Church became the national church of Rome. Information found on: Ten Peak Moments of the Catholic Church PDF in 8th Grade Class Videos Folder (Edict/Councils)
Eastern and Western Schism
This is what divided Christianity into two different parts-Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy. The main cause of the schism was the disputes of papal authority. The Pope of Rome claimed that he had authority over the western and eastern patriarchs, even though he only had authority over the western patriarchs. The church split in almost all ways. Both sides believe that they are the one holy catholic and apostolic church. They both believe they are the true church. This information was found in https://www.theopedia.com/great-schism

They also believed that the Holy Spirit wasn't Divine, but just a messenger of God. The Council concluded that Jesus was both human and Divine together, and the Holy Spirit was Divine.
