Through the centuries, stories of popes and of the papacy - from Catholic and non-Catholic perspectives, presented as biographies or as histories of an institution - have often been controversial in nature. The focus has been on the institution of the papacy, because in its current description and history, it intrudes as a challenge to ecumenism. This work specifically examines at the position of the primacy, from the beginning to the present. Whether as liberating truth which comes forth from the national Church or an narrow perspective; whether "rock of the Church" or "stumbling-block", primacy remains a reality at the heart of many ecclesiastical problems. The book should help in the understanding of its history. Chapters cover the development of the primacy in the first five centuries, different functions of unity in the east and west, the papacy as the head of the Church and Christendom in the middle ages, and the primacy as a confessional mark of identity in modern times.
