Tag recently added, "This article may be too long..."Edit

I suggest moving to Byzantine Rite these sections:

   4 Worship
   5 Traditions
   6 Holy mysteries (sacraments)

The are big gaps in "Byzantine Rite", e.g., "This section is empty" for "Sacraments and other services performed as needed". If this should result in Byzantine Rite becoming too long, I have ideas of how to break it up also. Vincent J. Lipsio (talk) 00:24, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Condensing the articleEdit

I condensed the sections about Fasting and Marriage. They were too long and too detailed, although we have separate article on both topics. According to WP:SUBARTICLE, this article should just summarize those topics. I also removed many images (mainly indiscriminate collections of images grouped in galleries). Such galleries just make the article too long but do not help in understanding of the article. Readability should not be sacrificed for aesthetics. Vanjagenije (talk) 11:02, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

I think the history sections on the Orthodox Church in Russia, especially this section [[1]] which only covers a 60 year period is way to long.... especially since there is an entire article on the Orthodox Church in Russia. Anyone more familiar with this topic want to move the bulk of that section to Russian Orthodox Church? Sethie (talk) 04:09, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Intro needs a lot of workEdit


The intro is too technical. In almost every 2nd or 3rd sentence there is a term that I have to click on to find the meaning of it.... An introduction should be an introduction- a broad overview- and specifics can be fleshed out later on. I have begun to address this- feedback, suggestions, collaberation welcome.
