St. John of Damascus, patron saint of OrthodoxWiki
Welcome to OrthodoxWiki, a free-content encyclopedia and information center for Orthodox Christianity that anyone can edit. In this English version, started in November 2004, we are currently working on 4,818 articles. Please register or login to post or revise content.

All new user registrations are moderated because of persistent trouble with spammers. When you sign-up, please give some indication that you are a real person, interested in OrthodoxWiki. Please be patient as we process your application. Sorry for the inconvenience!

The OrthodoxWiki editors have taken St. John of Damascus as their heavenly patron and intercessor as they seek to further the worship and knowledge of the All-Holy Trinity and the faith of the Orthodox Church by means of these pages.

Please take a moment to read about what OrthodoxWiki is and is not.

The Episcopal Assembly of North and Central America, founded in 2010, consists of all the active Orthodox bishops of North and Central America, representing multiple jurisdictions. It is the successor to SCOBA, and it is not, properly speaking, a synod. The Episcopal Assembly of North and Central America is one of several such bodies around the world which operate in the so-called "diaspora."
