Christian dietary laws

From WikiMD's Health & Wellness Encyclopedia

Brief summary - Christian dietary laws

In mainstream Christianity, including Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxism, Anglicanism, Presbyterianism, Lutheranism and Calvinism, there exists no dietary restrictions regarding specific animals that can not be eaten. This practice, which diverges from Judaism's dietary restrictions, stems from Peter the Apostle's vision of a sheet with animals, described in the Bible, in Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 10, when Saint Peter was told that what God hath made clean, that call not thou common. Some Christian monks, such as the Trappists, have adopted a policy of Christian vegetarianism.
