Perhaps you're looking for Hrodulf? (not Hroðulf aka Hrothulf) See User:Hroðulf/disambiguation

This is the user page for Hroðulf (or Hrothulf), a small-time pseudonymous volunteer editor of Wikipedia. You can use it to find out more about me, and in particular, some of the 'hows' and 'whys' of what I do on Wikipedia. Nothing I write here, or anywhere else, is officially sanctioned by Wikimedia (or anyone else!)

Who is Hroðulf?[edit]

I am not User:Hrodulf who has the same name spelled slightly differently, but is a different real-life person. See: User:Hroðulf/disambiguation

I chose my username, Hroðulf (or Hrothulf), from the Anglo-Saxon or Old English language epic poem Beowulf. It was a little presumptuous of me, as the only West Germanic languages I know are modern English and modern Scots. I actually understand much less of Beowulf than I do of the modern West Frisian language, which isn't that much. Wikipedia has an article about the literary and historical character Hroðulf, which I did not write.

What is that funny letter ð in your username?[edit]

That is the letter Eth, used in Germanic and Celtic (Irish) alphabets. My username comes from the Old English language, where ð represents the th sound in modern English (as in the words that and the). It really is a modern West European character, listed in the ISO/IEC 8859-1 Latin-1 standard character encoding, and is used in some modern Nordic languages, so most computer applications developed in the last ten to fifteen years support it. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 10:11, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Article improvement list[edit]

Feeding yours and my addiction to Wikipedia. In my humble opinion, the encyclopedia would benefit if you call by one of these articles, and contribute your skills or knowledge.

Anglican doctrine[edit]

Note.svg To-do list for Anglican doctrine:


* Expand the section on Unofficial doctrine to include paragraphs on

  • Write a section on doctrinal issues related to ordination of women
  • Write a section on homosexuality doctrine
  • Reference as many facts as possible
  • Remove article stub tag
I think the above items would be sufficient to remove the article stub tag. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 15:43, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
I think the broad parameters of these issues have been addressed in the rewrite. Fishhead64 20:55, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

* Write a short list of books for further reading (this would also be helpful to editors to research new sections for the article)

  • Rewrite the lead section as a summary of all the article (needed for GA status)
  • Add inline citations for all direct quotations (needed for GA status)
  • Add references for all material
  • Expand the pararaph on the doctrinal controversies related to Pietism and the Methodist schism

* Get linked from relevant articles elsewhere in Wikipedia

  • Explain how some provinces have used church legislation to distance themselves from some implications of the Thirty-Nine Articles
  • Expand the stub of E.L. Mascall

* Explain the Anglican ecclesiologies, as they were prior to the pastoral oversight experiments (probably in the 'unofficial doctrine' section)

* Expand the Book of Common Prayer section

* Write about the doctrines of Anglican sacraments

If you take on one of these tasks, please write “in progress” next to it and sign your name with ~~~~ (four tildes). If you want to pass on the baton for a task, just delete your in progress marker. When a task is done, just strike it out with <s> at the start of the line, and </s> at the end.
