Considering Propositions

This is a pretty hard question to reply on simply because there are a lot of factors. However, in respect to the Greeks and the Latins specifically, there was a long growing animosity between them for centuries, probably stemming back to the Greeks being conquered by Rome. The division between them was based on culture and language and eventually manifested itself in religion as well resulting in the schism of 1054. We see in church history, a constant struggle for power between Constantinople and Rome with resulting affects also impacting the Chalcedonion schism. But the apparent greater defensiveness/divisiveness (which I am uncertain is typical of all EO's) may also be partly the result of the different theological traditions - EO's primarily Antiochene and OO's primarily Alexandrine - but this would require some rather in-depth study to try to identify a connection.
