Wikipedia:WikiProject Religion/Interfaith work group

Jump to: navigation, search

Goals[edit]

This task force would attempt to deal with these subjects by trying to bring together good editors familiar with a variety of religions who could try to create guidelines for articles relating to several religions and resolve disputes relating to such content in these articles, in a fair, non-POV, accurate way.

Scope[edit]

The scope of this group includes all articles which involve significant content relating to disparate religious traditions. These include, but are not limited to the articles in Category:Interfaith. Also, any articles which are found to qualify for the attention of this group should be added to the category or one of its subcategories.

Activity[edit]

The purpose of this project is two-fold.

  • (1) It shall work to improve articles which explicitly lie within its purview- that being articles which deal with several religious traditions- by working to create missing articles, and improve and maintain existing articles.
  • (2) There are (and will continue to be) questions raised regarding, for instance, an article related to Islam which has some content explicitly related to Christianity. In this instance, it might be beneficial to have someone who is perhaps better informed of the minutiae of Christianity to review that content to see if it is accurate and NPOV. To assist with this, we are asking all interested parties to indicate their own areas of expertise or knowledge, so that we will be more easily capable of bringing in informed editors to review this specific material.
