Talk:Ecumenical Patriarchate in America
The title of this article sounds a little odd to me. At first I worried if it was a new heretical sect I hadn't heard of! The content would naturally come under the Ecumenical Patriarchate article, though perhaps there is enough content to warrent a separate page. Does anyone have further suggestions on how this could be rephrased? — FrJohn (talk)
- I'm not really sure how else to title it. I based the title roughly on the names of the jurisdictions of Moscow and Jerusalem in the US. Anyway, the article makes it pretty clear what it's talking about.
- I do think it's worth having a separate article on this subject, though, mainly because I think it helps give a sense of perspective on the makeup of American Orthodoxy. Additionally, although there's little administrative connection between the various groups under the EP in the US, there can be a synod of all the relevant bishops.
- The article on the EP needs to be expanded significantly, of course (I've recently significantly reworked the Wikipedia version and may bring those changes over here), but I think putting this article's contents into that one would imbalance it. —Dcn.
