The Reconciliation of New Jerusalem was the last of the western religious consolidations which began with the Reconciliation of Rome in 2248CE. At Rome, Pope Innocent XXVII, the Bishop of Rome and Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church, and Archbishop Anastaz Toplansky, President of the Bishops Council of the United Christian Denominations, agreed to put aside past dogmatic differences. Pope Innocent XXVII became the first Pontiff of the Universal Catholic Church. In a like manner, the Reconciliation of New Jerusalem of 2536CE recognized the common heritage of the Jewish and Christian faiths. The leadership of the Church is alternately held for life by a Pontiff or a Chief Rabbi. Pope John XXXI was appointed by College of Rabbinic Cardinals in 2540CE, and the Holy See was established at New Jerusalem.
