The Orthodox Church, officially the Orthodox Catholic Church, is the second-largest Christian church. It has no central doctrinal or governance authority analogous to the Catholic pope, consisting instead of several self-governing churches, which usually recognize each other as valid, although there are conflicts regarding this.

Several of these churches have mainly non-Europeans as members.
