Featured article

Dn., I was thinking it would be nice to do something of a Nativity theme through January 7 or so. However, it doesn't look like we have enough information on OrthodoxWiki for that yet. I'll let St. Gregory Palamas take a turn for now, but I would like your feedback about the Nativity-theme idea. —magda (talk) 11:13, December 23, 2005 (CST)

Well, of course I was hoping you'd provide that.  :) I don't have as much knowledge and understanding as I would like to do what I want with this; still more questions than answers.
There's already Nativity and Nativity Icon, and Incarnation, but these need more expansion before I would want them to be featured. However, there could be other aspects as well, maybe a Hymns of the Nativity which talks about the theological importance; an article on the Magi; and the geneology or forefathers of Christ; I'd love to see one which talks about Christ as the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophesies; Herod and Holy Innocents might be a good idea, talking about the world's reaction to the birth. You know, because everyone will have plenty of free time to get this up for this year... —magda (talk) 14:48, December 23, 2005 (CST)

On Egypt, Constantinople, Jerusalem, etc.

You are right. I guess you need a "disambiguiation page" here. Same applies to Jerusalem (as a city/place of importance in Christendom and not just a patriarchal see). ER


Hey. For the e-vangelism page hte entry is not refering to the evangelical church movement. It is making reference to the literal meaning of the word. Message to DcnDavid I have made a new format for the entry if you want to view it. (This probably meets the style and content better). An e-vangelist is a person who uses the Internet to present the Christian gospel message to the world. == Biblical Role == The role of an evangelist or e-vangelist in conjunction with the [[apostles]], [[prophets]], [[pastors]] and [[teachers]] is described in '''[[Ephesians]] 4:11-13''' "''11He is the one who gave these gifts to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. 12Their responsibility is to equip God's people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ, 13until we come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God's Son that we will be mature and full grown in the Lord, measuring up to the full stature of Christ.''

New Martyr circle

Saint titles has a link to New-martyr which redirects to New Martyrs which redirects to Saint titles. New-Martyr is the main redirect (in all the calendric pages) to Saint titles. Perhaps I should have changed the link on the OrthodoxWiki:Articles from the DEC page so it would be to New-Martyr insteada of creating New Martyrs as another redirect. —magda (talk) 15:34, January 3, 2006 (CST)

I suspected as much; hence my comment, rather than trying to "fix" things. :) —magda (talk) 15:36, January 3, 2006 (CST)


Dn. Andrew, when I search for "Eve" I am redirected to Adam and Eve, but when I get to the search page (as opposed to using the search in the nav-bar), I get no hits at all. Any suggestions? (My preferences are set such that all of the namespaces are selected as a range, and I don't have a problem with searching for "Adam.") —magda (talk) 08:34, January 4, 2006 (CST)


Dn. Andrew: Thanks for the heads up. It struck me after I added the Japan banner. Your comment confirmed it. I must say your are quick on the editting. I don't mind it as I keep finding I left something out or missed somewhere and I find it nice having yours and Magda's editting help.Wsk 10:07, January 5, 2006 (CST)

Bishop v. Hierarch, Patriarch v. Primate

When creating categories and lists, do you think it would be better to use the current title of a see, e.g. bishop, or a more general title, e.g., hierarch? I'm looking at Category:Bishops.

To take an example, List of Patriarchs of Constantinople has bishops of Byzantium, bishops of Constantinople, archbishops of Constantinople, and then patriarchs of Constantinople. The listings, i.e., each bishop, would potentially be included in a similar category: Category:Patriarchs of Constantinople. However, those falling under "bishops of Byzantium" might not be included in this category (cf. Apostle Andrew). That's why I am trying to think of a better way to organize.

The options as I see them:

  1. If the see is now a (bishopric/archbishopric/patriarchate), all the hierarchs of that see will be included in a list and category of (bishops/archbishops/patriarchs) of that see.
  2. For any given see, the hierarch would be included in the list and category of hierarchs of that see; any see which is now a patriarchate will have its primates included instead in the list and category of primates of that patriarchate.
  3. Each category and list will be its own individual entity.

Your thoughts? —magda (talk) 14:24, January 5, 2006 (CST)

Your patent answers (which I never seem to think of) are why I keep asking you questions. Thank you. —magda (talk) 10:47, January 6, 2006 (CST)

Iakovos correspondence

The only other place I can find this information is the Wikipedia page. Currently, the website of the Department of Pastoral and Social Theology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is down. —magda (talk) 20:29, January 7, 2006 (CST)
