WikiProject Arminianism

James Arminius 2.jpg

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to Arminianism. Wikipedia articles on Arminianism-related topics are typically at or near the top of Google searches - so accurate, thorough, and - yes - comprehensive entries are imperative. This page and its subpages contain suggestions and it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. All editors interested in Arminian Christianity are invited and encouraged to participate. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list here. The goals of the project are:

  1. To improve the quality of Arminianism-related articles.
  2. To increase the number of articles related to Arminianism in Wikipedia

The WikiProject scope is generally the same as that of the Category:Arminianism. This includes any person having an impact on Arminianism, even opponents such as Synod of Dort. Tagging an article indicates that the article needs attention from the WikiProject Arminianism.

Arminians to be included:

  • Theologians, philosophers, or some other important Christian worker, e.g. Bible translator, evangelist, etc.
  • Politicians (kings, lords, whatever) that had an influence on the ability of Arminianism to spread, i.e. took in Arminian refugees, were of help to Arminianism materially, and the like
  • Ministers if they a have relevance to the wider Arminain/Wesleyan tradition.

Tasks

  • Add our new {{Arminianism-stub}} template to the articles in Category:Stub-Class Arminianism articles
    • When doing this, remove any generic Christianity stub templates (unless there's a clear non-Arminian interest); they want to reduce the size of their stub category (see Category:Christianity stubs). OTOH, if it's a specific template (eg. Christian biography or Christian clergy, then leave it)
  • Look for things to do mentioned on the /News page
  • Go to work in one of our departments; Assessment could use some help at the moment.

Departments

  • Assessment Department - These editors work to assess and categorize articles within the scope of the Arminianism project.
  • Collaboration Department - Here we seek to identify articles that would benefit from a significant collaborative effort.
  • Translation Department - These editors serve to enhance Wikipedia's Arminianism content by translating material from or to non-English articles and sources for use within the project. To coordinate this, it includes a staff of volunteer translators for various languages.
  • Outreach Department - These editors work to recruit and welcome new editors to the project.

  • For people: [[Jacobus Arminius]], unless others by that name exist, in which case the activity for which the individual is best known should be bracketed, e.g., [[Jacobus Arminius (reformer)]] (not [[Jacobus Arminius (scholar)]], [[Jacobus Arminius (theologian)]], etc.)
    • For clergy: (minister), (deacon), (priest), (bishop)
    • For scholars: (theologian), (philosopher)
    • Other possibilities: (author), (martyr), (missionary), (religious)
  • For other subjects: The simpler the title the better, with redirects or disambiguation pages, as necessary.
