(p.244) 39 Purgatory
East and West: The Making of a Rift in the Church

Henry Chadwick

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the debate about purgatory. To normal Latin view immediately on death souls received their reward, the damned to hell, the just to paradise, the imperfect to purification in Purgatory. Discussions and its circulation precipitated reactions on the subject of disagreement between Latin and Greek churches. The report of the debate about purgatory which survived from the Otranto meeting gives the Greek side, but a Latin account went at once to Rome.

Keywords:   purgatory, hell, paradise, Otranto meeting
