Smoking[edit]

It would be nice to get a little clarification about the smoking chalice vs the drinking chalice. What does the smoking chalice look like? Is the Rastafarian smoking chalice one only called a chalice because it's used in religious ceremonies like the drinking chalice?

Definition?[edit]

This has been moved from the main article to the talk page until there is research showing this as an actual use of the term:

  • The downward pointing triangle is sometimes referred to as the chalice. It is the symbol of water (as it flows downward), the grace of heaven, and the womb. [citation needed]it is one of the most ancient symbols of female divinity.[citation needed]

The definitions of "chalice" on dictionary.com did not include this definition. If "chalice" can in fact mean this, it needs to be verifiable by a reliable resource. Also, if a reliable resource is found, this symbol should be clearly designated from the commonly understood definitions of "chalice". It should be separated either under a separate heading or placed in a separate article by itself. JBogdan 03:00, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

I have a broader question about definition...why is the Catholic church the only ones defining (or, apparently, being allowed to define) a drinking vessel, and what it represents? Movieman894 08:36, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

I as a witch decided that i would add something which relates to its use in my religion, i hope the christians dont mind. I havent added much but plan on putting in more effort in the future. Grey witch 11:20, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Da Vinci Code[edit]

The use of the word chalice in the Da Vinci Code is not an etymology, if it was meant to have been an etymology does it not make sense that it would be under wiktionary or under the heading of etymology? If you really must have it changed then i suggest changing the heading to use in popular culture. Grey witch 21:07, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Chalice Trappist[edit]

Around here (NL/BE), (special) beer glasses for Trappist beer are also called chalices. They also have that form, http://www.beerables.net/chimay_belgian_trappist_chalice_glass.aspx 88.159.71.34 (talk) 16:58, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

I've noticed the term gaining some currency in that particular usage recently in the United States as well (mostly pushed by advertising but also used in tasting contexts). Wilhelm Meis (☎ Diskuss | ✍ Beiträge) 17:54, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:UUA Logo.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:UUA Logo.svg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:24, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Chalice (cup)Chalice — Clearly the primary meaning. Chalice now redirects here, the old one having been moved to Chalice (disambiguation). Johnbod (talk) 17:34, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
