Having a preference in all things for English names for saints --- just as we do with Johns, Pauls, Basils, and most other saints' names --- I've noted the usage of Nicholas, notably used by HB Met. Herman at the 2005 Pilgrimage at St. Tikhon Monastery, PA. --Basil 18:35, March 28, 2006 (CST)

What does "now" in Crestwood, NY (written immediately afterward St. Vladimir's Theological Seminary) mean? Was the seminary located somewhere else previously? User:Gabriela 12:56, May 3, 2006 (CST)

Yep. It was initially located in NYC and housed in Columbia University. It wasn't in Crestwood until 1962. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 15:59, May 3, 2006 (CDT)
Huh, you learn something new everyday. Thanks. Gabriela 8:26, 13 May, 2006 (CST)

- I agree with changing Nikolai to Nicholas, or at least putting one in brackets.

Anyway, what is with the mention of him being accused of supporting the holocaust? That is an awful accusation to mention. Is there any foundation to this claim? Or can the comment be removed? Andreas

Even though it is most likely false, it is worth mentioning because it's a common accusation. Encyclopedic articles deal with what's notable about their subject, both good and bad. —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 19:18, May 24, 2006 (CDT)

Whats with the personal opinions?

Took out "which is more an allegation of historical fact rather than the racism which is the heart of anti-semitism." To me racism is racism regardless of who it's directed at but on top of that what in the world does that statement have to do with the life of the Nikolai Velimirovic?

I think it'd make a lot more sense to simply note that he was accused of anti-semitism, and that the facts do not bear this out without inserting subjective statements into the mix.
