Your use of Byzantine
Hi there. I hope you'll address some of the issues I've brought up on [[Talk:Church of Antioch]] regarding some of your recent edits. Thanks! {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 20:18, March 13, 2006 (CST)
== Your use of Byzantine ==
Many folks use the descriptor ''Byzantine'' for different purposes. Within Orthodoxy it is generally used to identify the specifically Greek, as opposed to Slavic, tradition. Outside of Orthodoxy it is often used to differentiate between Chalcedonian Orthodoxy and non-Chalcedonian "Oriental" Orthodoxy.
In several of your recent contributions I've noticed you using the word in this latter way. However, this isn't necessary (or even desired) on OrthodoxWiki. We start from a [[NPOV|Mainstream Chalcedonian Bias]], which means that when we use the word Orthodox we generally mean Eastern or Byzantine Orthodox. We don't have to include the words "Eastern" or "Byzantine." Non-Chalcedonians, etc., are not presumed to be included.
I hope this is clear. Let me know if you have any questions. {{User:Dcndavid/sig}} 06:54, March 15, 2006 (CST)
