Wikipedia:WikiProject Anglicanism

WikiProject Anglicanism

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to Anglicanism and the Anglican Communion. Wikipedia articles on Anglican-related topics are typically at or near the top of Google searches – so accurate, thorough, and – yes – comprehensive entries are imperative. This page and its subpages contain suggestions and it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. All Anglican editors and those interested in Anglican Christianity are invited and encouraged to participate. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list here. The goals of the project are:

  1. To improve the quality of Anglican-related articles.
  2. To increase the number of articles related to Anglicanism and the Anglican Communion in Wikipedia.

    Naming conventions

    Naming conventions

    • For people: [[Thomas Cranmer]], unless others by that name exist, in which case the activity for which the individual is best known should be bracketed, e.g., [[Richard Hooker (theologian)]] (not [[Richard Hooker (scholar)]], [[Richard Hooker (priest)]], etc.)
      • For clergy: (deacon), (priest), (bishop)
      • For scholars: (theologian), (philosopher)
      • Other possibilities: (author), (martyr), (missionary), (religious)
    • For other subjects: The simpler the title the better, with redirects or disambiguation pages, as necessary. Where there are existing articles, the word "Anglican" should be incorporated, e.g., [[Anglican Eucharistic theology]], [[Order of St. Benedict (Anglican)]]
