To do[edit]

Articles to be improved/new requests[edit]


Almost all of the entries for the Archbishops of Canterbury could do with expansion and/or editing (see List of Archbishops of Canterbury. Many have very short biographies, and most of the rest are brief and/or lifted verbatim from the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Some of the entries are little more than stubs. {{Archbishops of Canterbury}} and {{ArchbishopofCanterbury-stub}} have been created to deal with this problem, and should supersede all stubs in any such articles (eg religious bio, English bio, etc).

Similarly, even more Archbishops of York (as might be expected) are stubs. A {{Archbishops of York}} and {{ArchbishopofYork-stub}} have also been created along the lines of {{Archbishops of Canterbury}} and {{ArchbishopofCanterbury-stub}} to deal with this problem, and should supersede all stubs in any such articles. Similar templates need to be created for each major bishopric.

Notable English dioceses such as Durham, London, and Winchester should also be checked over for biographies that could be created or expanded/edited. Similarly, the primates of prominent national churches and notable metropolitans of ecclesiastical provinces should be checked over to see if they have biographies or if the present entries could be improved.

Below are indicated some entries of prominent prelates and clergy whose biographies could be improved, and some entries that have yet to be created.
