Excommunicating Each Other
Pope Leo Sent, Cardinal Humbert to Excommunicate Cerularius, he marched up to the alter of Hagia Sophia. In Front of EVERYONE, he laid down a Bull (a proclamation by the pope) excommunicating Cerularius. Cerularius Responded By Excommunicating the Cardinal. This was only a Symbolic Act, for the Patriarch did not have that power. But it showed that the Split, or Schism, Between East And West Was Complete.
