Importance Rating[edit]

This is arguably of Top importance. Gregory Thaumaturgos is one of the few Ante-Nicene, but post-Apostolic fathers whose writings are available with reasonable comprehensiveness, and he is therefore very important for the study of Christian belief in that era. As such he has importance outside the field of "saints" as such, which is one of the qualifications for that rating. TCC (talk) (contribs) 23:04, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit]

I've had to remove significant portions of this article because it was wrote copied from the Catholic encyclopedia: http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07015a.htm this article may be important, and the Catholic encyclopedia is a great reference source - but we can't just lift material from it and plonk it down parrot fashion here.

Unfortunately almost all of it had to go for that reason. Which is a real shame, especially if people had put work into wikifying it. I'm sorry, but, we can't just copy stuff from elsewhere. I'm adding stub tag. Petemyers (talk) 18:33, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
The Catholic Encyclopedia, published in 1913, is in the public domain. Therefore such material can in fact be added freely. Charles Matthews (talk) 13:34, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
Ah, sorry, at least that's now recorded on this talk page.Petemyers (talk) 13:39, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
