I would like to restructure this article Seperating out the dissent element into a sub=section if possible... something like "this is what the union was history etc..." then a sub heading under 'Old Lutheran' or 'Dissenters' and discuss what the opposition took offense to. A year after writing much of this, I feel it doesn't read well. --SauliH 06:03, 9 October 2006 (UTC)


I will offer the first suggestion for revision--to include the German name for the 1817 Prussian Union, which is referred to as the Unionsurkunde.


German Wikipedia seems to have separate articles for "Church of Prussian Union": de:Kirche der Altpreußischen Union and for "Agenda Strife": de:Agendenstreit. (82.181.94.33 13:40, 19 October 2006 (UTC))

Nice to see what has happened to this article.[edit]

After a sabbatical from WP for a few years, it is nice to revisit an old article that you started and see how it has developed. I have moved on from this subject, but will stop back in from time to time to check it out. This article could maybe use a peer-review to see what needs to happen to bring it to GA status.SauliH (talk) 15:16, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Evangelical[edit]

It is not an evangelical church, but an "evangelic" church. That ist the common name in German for Protestantism; while Protestantism pinpoints the protest of historical Lutherans and Reformed, "Evangelic" highlights the "sola scriptura" principle of Luther, Calvin and Zwingli. Every practice in an evangelic church has to be founded in the bible. --129.13.186.1 (talk) 12:08, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

True, most Anglophone people understand the term as related to Evangelicalism, but the meaning of being rooted in the gospel, is also used in English, which is why several chuch bodies in the US and Canada are officially named the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, or Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. This differentiation is explained in the usage section of the arcticle on Evangelicalism. So translating names of German-language church bodies as Evangelical or Evangelical Lutheran, or Evangelical Reformed is a correct translation within the scope of the meaning of the term in English.
