Lack of ToC Edit

Personal opinion is that I believe that this page could do with a ToC, and a review of order for clarity. It is very much scroll-a-rama and not the best to navigate. -- billinghurst (talk) 12:10, 4 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not everything is Christian Edit

In particular, the "Gnostic Creed" and "Ecclesiæ Gnosticæ Catholicæ Creed" are anti-Christian. The latter is already correctly listed under Thelema at Religious texts W4rd3n (talk) 22:17, 8 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've removed Ecclesiae &c., as it's not Christian. However, Gnosticism is a long-standing Christian tradition, even if it is rather distinct from recent or mainstream Christianity.--Prosfilaes (talk) 04:07, 15 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Restructuring the portal Edit

The basic setup of this portal dates from before the adoption of the portal classification system (see Help:Portal classification), and the majority of it doesn't belong here anymore. In effect, this portal was split into several portals, but the content hasn't been moved yet. For example, everything in the section "Scripture" should be moved to BS:The Bible and some of the stuff in the section "Doctrinal theology" should be moved to BT:Doctrinal theology. Portals and works relating to particular denominations should be placed in BX:Christian denominations

The contents of this portal should be basically the following:

  • Christianity considered generally
  • Christian perspectives on other (non-theological) topics
  • Christian history, divided by period, from the Church Fathers to the present day
  • Persecution of Christians
  • Heretical movements within Christianity
  • Christian tolerance/intolerance
  • Biographies of Christians

I'm currently focused on cleaning up P:Language and literature so I'm not going to do this now. I'll eventually make my way over to this section and make the above changes if they haven't already been done by then. --Arbitan (talk) 16:25, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
