Please don't take this as a "lets bash Catholics" question. My mom was Catholic, I have deep respect for their faith.
Protestant religions exist on the premise that at some point (from before the word Catholic was ever used, up to Martin Luther) there was a sort of mass drifting or falling away in the church away from original truths.
Does your denomination have a specific time frame in which they believe that happened? Before or after the council at Nicea? Or close to when Martin Luther first protested? Somewhere in between? After?
Do you have specific years or events to mark it?
Name your denomination if there's an official time frame for it. If not, you can leave that out.
(also, don't turn this into a lets bash protestants question, or any other bashing please).

Try this link. I know there is a better link online. I got a message that I posted the wrong link :( sorry about that. That is what happens when you try to do a quick google search.
There is a better link out there with the reasons for the split I don't have time to search for it now. As for your denomination question, you might have to look at each specific denomination for that answer.
Tobbymommy, my understanding is that much of the church went about business as usual for years without knowing about the split. :-) thanks for your message I will be back on later
