The article makes little room to discuss the Greek scheme of ecclesiastical awards, and does not even allude to them. Should a separate article be written or should this one be modified to take account of the Greek scheme?
- Methinks that this article ought to be broadened and then distinctions made between the various traditions.

- I'll try and take it a step in that direction with regard to formatting, but I'm not very knowledgeable in this area at all. Theophan 22:25, 26 Feb 2005 (CST)
Could we have a link to the document from the Russian Church or at least a proper citation? -Protodn. Kirill
- Good idea. I also think we don't need separate articles for the different local traditions. Some more history/context would be great too. — FrJohn (talk)
Order of Saint Innocent Silver Class
The OCA has an award called the Order of Saint Innocent Silver Class, which is supposedly the highest honor they bestow. I am unable to find anything about it however. Metr. Herman is a recipient. --cholmes75 16:22, December 22, 2006 (PST)
This is not a clergy award, but something that may be given to lay or ordained alike. --Fr Lev 08:51, April 8, 2014 (PDT)
In the article it makes only mention of the Patriarch of Moscow, and the Metropolitan's of Kiev and Tokyo wearing the second Panagia. Is this mentioning the See's whose Head Bishop always has a second Panagia, or is it mentioning known recipients of the award? I ask, because I know that there are other bishops with the award within the Moscow Patriarchate (Metropolitan's of Kharkiv and Odesa, Nykodym and Ahafanhel respectively, for example). --AKCGY 16:34, June 6, 2009 (UTC)
Greek and Antiochian practice
In the section on Greek practice, I saw that the qualifiers about wearing the epigonation or pectoral cross on "high feast days" has been removed. I just wanted to say that came from the chancellor of the Greek Metropolis of Denver. Of course, there are no doubt variations in practice.
I believe we need a section added on Antiochian practice. Here in America,at least, I've been told that their awards are different, e.g., every priest wears the epigonation and the norm is that a priest who has served for 10 years is made an archpriest with the right to wear a pectoral cross. --Fr Lev 06:10, May 5, 2014 (PDT)
