  • Gregory of Nazianzus, better known as St. Gregory the Theologian. St. Gregory is one of the most important Orthodox theologians. It's now waiting for Good Article review. Majoreditor 16:44, 5 May 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

September 2006 edit

  • History of Christianity in Ukraine: This article needs a lot of NPOV and much more attention, but IMO it is a FA jewl when finished and polished. --Kuban Cossack   17:05, 25 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Support: A fine idea. This really is a fascinating subject but hard to understand. I have a copy of the Blackwell Dictionary of Eastern Christianity which has an article on this. Perhaps it can be used to help work out the kinks. —Preost talk contribs 02:17, 28 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Support--Kober 13:33, 7 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Support--Calak 18:48, 16 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Support: I eventually found this page when I started to look for information on Ukrainian Orthodoxy and got thoroughly confused for a while. In fact, I tidied up one of the articles before registering my login name. We should also try to sort out information about the Ukrainian Church's position in North America.—Dorotheus 09:30, 21 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Support--—Antonios Aigyptostalk 09:55, 4 September 2006 (UTC): Since ASDamick/Preost has indefinitely retired from Wikipedia, shall we assume this article has won the vote for the present month, and get to work on it?Reply[reply]

  • Praxis / Orthopraxis - This article seems woefully inadequate to such an important topic. Could we make this October's COTM and focus on expanding its definition of Orthodox living, practices, and so on? —Antonios Aigyptostalk 19:55, 5 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Support--This article seems woefully inadequate to such an important topic. - Completely agree! It is also wrong, as in orthodoxy, belief and practise are essentially equivalent (not opposite as stated). Also, unlike the standard english usage, the very word orthodox is denoting both true belief and true praxis. --Alexander Radev >> {talk to me or see my contributions}. 12:23, 11 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

COTM edit

What's the status with the COTM now?--Calak 05:37, 1 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
