An Orthodox what?!

For those of you familiar with Wikipedia, this is an Orthodox Christian project based on those lines. It's still very much in the early developmental stages, but there's lots that may be accomplished, and of course the potential is immense. (And of course because of the open-licensed nature of Wikipedia, you can feel free to lift material about Orthodoxy from there as a starting point.) I believe the site is run by an OCA priest in the Diocese of the Midwest.

For those of you who aren't familiar with this medium, a Wiki (as it usually gets implemented) is an encyclopedic-style resource maintained as a website which is editable by anyone. OrthodoxWiki has the potential to be a massive compendium of information about Orthodoxy, whether historical, liturgical, artistic, ecclesiastical, biographical, etc.

So, if you care to, check the site out, click around, explore, and contribute. And please pass the word along to your friends. - Andrew Stephen Damick

A New Place to Play

Like Wikipedia, OrthodoxWiki is a free-content encyclopedia that anyone can contribute to (either by writing new articles or editing existing ones). In the case of OrthodoxWiki, the content is specifically oriented towards Orthodox Christianity. It was started in November, so it is still in the "ground floor" stage of development.

I've fallen in love with this new resource because it appeals to a number of my proclivities--writing, editing, theology, organizing, and technology. Until the Christmas Break ends and I must return to school, I think this will be one of my major diversions. Check it out! - Deacon Matthew

An Online Reference Tool

"I have The Complete Book of Orthodoxy which I have always enjoyed as a "quick reference" tool. This could develop into something even better." - Nicholas

Live Long and Prosper

"What a fine idea. I hope that the Orthodoxwiki prospers!" - Archpriest Andrew in Minneapolis

A Great Resource

"This reminds of me how St. Peter of Damascus was able to write his systematic theological work found in the Philokalia. He simply took advantage of the monastic libraries and gather all the information he could and eventually he wrote based on that. Now all of us Orthodox Christians have the chance to explore all the knowledge and experience of thousands of years of her history. And this is all brought to you by those who have nothing but love and respect for this project. Take advantage of this and enjoy all that we have to offer." - Derek J. Power
