    on down

    The Eastern Church became the Greek Orthodox Church by severing all ties with Rome and the Roman Catholic Church — from the pope to the Holy Roman Emperor on down.

    What does on down mean in the above sentence?
    On down = and including all lower levels (here, of the religious and political hierarchies).
