The Real Presence
How about a discussion of the real Presence according to Orthodoxy? It is hard to find good articles on this important topic online, and Eucharist is too brief in this regard. Willibald 23:59, August 23, 2006 (CDT)
Hello, I would like to request someone to put in MediaWiki:Recentchangestext the relevant interwiki [[bg:Специални:Recentchanges]] to the bulgarian recent changes special page. Thanks.
- P.S. And... I would like to make a proposal: this extension acts like a forum inside the wiki and is better for discussions. Gregg 17:38, August 26, 2006 (CDT)
- I've added the interwiki link and installed the forum extension. Haven't tested it out, but let's try it and see how it works. There's a sample forum here. — FrJohn (talk)
Anyone interested in porting over some of the language templates (the boxes that indicate user proficiency) from Wikipedia? It might be helpful in identifying people re: the various localizations. — FrJohn (talk)
- I have started to do just that. Here is my personal "Babel project" with some of the work I've been attempting. I suppose recent changes and my user contributions would also provide a similar look. I hope the progress is satisfactory. Hellenica 21:46, November 30, 2006 (PST)
- I'm definitely liking these wikipedia imports, Hellenica. The language boxes are extremely useful (Spanish, anyone?), and the personal user ones are just fun.Gabriela 20:49, December 1, 2006 (PST)
Cathedral of St. Petersburg, Russia
I've looked throughout the interweb and I simply can't find any place that says what the main cathedral of St. Petersburg is. Is it the Transfiguration? Kazan? I would think St. Isaac's would be "it" but non confirmation. Any help?
- This may not be true today, but in the late Soviet days (1988, when I visited the city) when the present Partriarch Alexei was the diocesan bishop in, then, Leningrad he held services in Trinity Cathedral (the one recently damaged by fire) in the Alexander Nevesky Monastery, Lavra. Then, the Kazan Cathedral was a museum and St Issac's was closed. Wsk 12:16, December 3, 2006 (PST)
