Any suggestions on where to find detailed information on the Great Schism of 1054 (Split between the Byzantine/Greek Church and The Roman Catholic Church. I am writing a research paper and would appreciate any help - thanks!

My first suggestion would be to go to Romanity.org
Next, I'll dig up my own paper on the dialogue between Jeremias II and the Tuebingen Scholars for references I used in it. I'll get back to you later.

Some things to bear in mind. The west always intended to be orthodox. Augustine's point of view is that upon which the thinking that results in the filioque is based. His understanding is psychological, and might have its basis in language; he "hated" the Greek language and loved Latin.

In a collapsing society such as maintained in the west, human tendancy is to find the nearest rescuer, that is, the one most likely to be our "representative," it will be one who speaks our language and seems to voice our perspective. The use of the filioque was only to defeat the Arianism that the originally stated Creed was written to defeat. Everything else is just defensive; and finally, ignorance is a disease only cured by knowledge.

Compare these points with what you discover in your reading and I think you'll probably find them correct.

In all honesty Richard, I will try to look at the whole picture rather than attempt to figure out which side was right or wrong. Although details are important, I am ultimately more interested in knowing why the main players made the choices they did and how all (world-wide) were majorly affected as a result.
