Protestantism was still half a millenium away and yet already Christianity was hugely divided along political and doctrinal lines. You can add to the list umpteen other variants on Christian theology such as gnosticism, Catharism and the like. Some of these denominations were declared heretical by Rome and/or Constantinople and their followers exterminated quite brutally, but many lived on and still exist way beyond any easy definitions of Catholicism and Protestantism.
