Talk:Patriarchate of Lisbon
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
|WikiProject Portugal||(Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)|
- First, it is the title of the officeholder, so it would need to be changed to Patriarchate of Lisboa. Second, Patriarchate is a honorary title. It is the Archdiocese of Lisboa according to the structure of the Catholic church. They both should be listed, but I think Patriarchate of Lisboa should be a disambig that redirects to the Archdiocese of Lisboa. Benkenobi18 (talk) 19:09, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
- Names of dioceses comply with how the diocese itself is called by the Catholic church (which has no preference for English). In this case, Catholic Heirarchy lists this archdiocese as the archdiocese of Lisboa. I don't really care, whether it's Lisbon or Lisboa, either are perfectly acceptable. Yes, it's the Roman Catholic diocese to make it consistant with all the others. If you feel that Lisbon is more accurate given that this is english wikipedia, go right ahead and change it from Lisboa to Lisbon.
