RFC on Spirituality section[edit]

First of all, I dont know how to do an official RFC, and I am not sure the issue is large enough to make some official request. I have been moving down the article slowing the last months, trying to improve both content and grammar. I am now approaching the Spirituality section. I see this section as an undue weight issue. The charismatic manifestations are not what Anabaptism is usually noted for, in fact, in my dozens of books on Anabaptism I cannot think of one of them that even addresses these manifestations. The Holy Spirit Leadership would have a little more weight to it, but again it was not one of the core issues on which Anabaptism was founded upon. I therefore propose removing these two points and replacing them with other points (Gelassenheit would definitely be one, as well as nachfolge), or at least make only a passing mention at best. Before doing this, I would like comments from other editors. Thanks! Mikeatnip (talk) 02:46, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Move to Anabaptism[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was not moved. --BDD (talk) 16:20, 1 February 2013 (UTC) (non-admin closure)

AnabaptistAnabaptism –This page is about a religious tradition, rather than Anabaptists themselves (although that is included). For this reason and for consistency with other pages (Lutheranism, Catholicism), it should be moved to Anabaptism. I realize Baptists is an exception, but that is only because there is no common name for that tradition. --JFHutson (talk) 22:55, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose -- This article is primarily about a past religious movement, not about the practice of adult baptism, which paedobaptists will refer to as anabaptism. The analogy drawn is a bad one, because those are about ideas. Peterkingiron (talk) 16:45, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Lutheranism is an idea? I'm not sure what that means. Movements are often referred to with an "-ism". The article uses "anabaptism" this way many times. I've never heard the practice called anabaptism by contemporary paedo-baptists. --JFH (talk) 18:14, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Oppose I believe the article lead clearly describes the usage of the term. Tiggerjay (talk) 03:15, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Liechtenstein? Leichenstein?[edit]

A small detail, in the Moravia section. Article currently refers to Leichenstein, and has a link. Is Leichenstein the same as Liechtenstein? The link is to Liechtenstein. One possibility: the link is to the wrong article. Another possibility: the link is simply misspelled. If someone knows, please fix. Oaklandguy (talk) 05:59, 18 March 2013 (UTC)


"Leichenstein" is a spelling mistake (a typical one among Americans, btw). I corrected it! Because Leichenstein would mean "dead body stone" Scary! 20:34, 10 December 2013 (UTC)grenzwertig — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.230.133.110 (talk)

The result of the move request was: moved. Xoloz (talk) 02:10, 7 March 2014 (UTC)



AnabaptistAnabaptistsBaptists is at the plural form. the singular is the term for a person who is an anabaptist. the groups article should conform to naming conventions here. Mercurywoodrose (talk) 16:59, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Groups of people are at plural titles, yes. Support Red Slash 17:04, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. Definitely sensible move. ~ ScitDeiWanna talk? 05:13, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
