Expert Answer:

Roman Catholic Church is a Christian church that is headed by the Pope, the bishop of Rome.  The Roman Catholic Church originally consisted of the followers who traced the history of the Church to the Jesus of Nazareth. Within few decades of the death and resurrection of Lord Jesus, the members of the Church spread out in different directions to form universal church with bishop of Rome as its head. Even after the fall of the Roman Empire, the Roman Catholic Church assumed spiritual and political supremacy in the west. In the Middle Ages, it influenced the art and culture of the western world. As it became a powerful institution, many evil practices crept into the Roman Catholic Church. Those people who revolted against these evil practices came to be known as the Protestants and those people who remained loyal to it, came to be known as the Roman Catholics.
