That question is too large to answer in the scope of CM. Basically the christian church was very wide geographically and over time it included many different cultures and traditions and people are really tied to their individual traditions, it's hard to separate cultural and religious beliefs. The main split is over how to interpret the Bible-- some believe in only a literal interpretation and some believe it should be studied with a non literal interpretation ( this is a whole topic and hornets nest unto itself).
There are many different denominations that sprang up over different areas of the world but most denominations are either Catholic or Protestantat their root with a few smaller groups who claim no influence from either.

If you read the Early Christian Writings, especially the Didache, the Martyrdom of Polycarp, and works by Ignatius of Antioch, Tertullian, and Justin Martyr, you will see they are sound Catholic writings.

There are some great answers already. To understand why the church split it's important to understand history and what was happening at the time, how people communicated and what kind of government was in control. if you are really interested in the subject I would encourage you to read a book about Church History that will go into how these things effected the Christian Church in greater detail.
I would recommend Church History in Plain Language by Bruce L. Shelley.
