According to the Wikipedia article linked, ROCOR didn't glorify Fr Pavel, and considered it impossible to do so. — edited by sτévο at 21:05, June 13, 2006 (CDT)

Yeah, I'd gotten the impression that Florensky hadn't been glorified by anyone. —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 21:14, June 13, 2006 (CDT)

Thank you for the alert. I noted the ROCOR when I was writing the article and thought was strange and hoped some onr would address the point. I went back to the Wikipedia article and found the it was revised on June 1, 2006 after I had originally copied the earlier copy. There are two revisions that got to the current text.

I'll delete the sentence. I also note that Paul Florensky is listed as a new matryr on the Calendar for December 15.

This would mean that it's no longer disputed, yes? — edited by sτévο at 19:08, June 14, 2006 (CDT)

I would hope so. But, then it is easy to "get into hot water" when religion is dicussed. Especially when writing about controversial people!Wsk 19:45, June 14, 2006 (CDT)

Hmm.. Maybe we need to make a distinction in our minds -- he was canonized/glorified as a martyr. That seems pretty clear. Some really like his theological work. Others don't. It doesn't seem to me that "the Church" has pronounced either way on this, right? Fr. John
