Revision as of 16:57, July 5, 2005

There are many things I'm confused about in this article:

  • Mina used throughout the article, but Menas as the article title. Is this saint of Alexandria (with a feast day of December 10)? Does this article need to be moved to a better title? Menas the Wonder-worker? What do you think?
  • The first paragraph seems especially disjointed when one reaches the second paragraph. Perhaps headings for the sections would help. (Life, Martyrdom, Posthumous miracles?) I'm not sure about heading for the third.
  • "He returned to the city over which he was Governor ..." followed by "... the Governor ordered him to be tortured" in the same paragraph (which begins, "One day he saw the heavens open ...").

Any thoughts, or should I just go ahead and make an initial revision? —magda 19:11, 5 Jul 2005 (EDT)
