Other uses[edit]

Shouldn't "Other Uses" be included in a disambuigation of Agnus Dei, rather than the main article?

Fair use rationale for Image:MSeal2.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:MSeal2.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Merger proposal[edit]


The snippet regarding the video game Homeworld is slightly redundant; the choir arrangement is Agnus Dei to Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings, as mentioned in the top of the section. At the least, it could be clarified. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:01, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

I agree. Will remove. History2007 (talk) 22:13, 13 March 2011 (UTC)


This may be a strange question, but do Wiki-articles need WP:RS references? This article has 8 references, 6 of which are on music and usually go to personal or commercial music sites! I see no dramatic non-musical errors elsewhere, but key theological and Christological elements have not even been mentioned. Time to clean up. History2007 (talk) 22:16, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Having looked through this article again, it is clear that the much of theological and all of the Christological issues are missing here. There is no Christology here, and little theology to speak of. The theology exists both in the Eastern Church and the Western Church. However, the term Agnus Dei and the entire music associated with it, as well as much of the art are a Western Church issue. Hence it will not make sense to add Eastern Orthodox theology to a page called Agnus Dei, and that material needs to go to a page called Lamb of God - which currently directs to here. I think what makes sense is to move the musical items to Agnus Dei (music) which needs expansion anyway, and as is has taken over the theology. Then Lamb of God discusses both the Western and Eastern theologies and can have a section on art too, with the plain Agnus Dei page leading there. As is the Eastern Orthodox Christology can not be added to this page, so that reshuffle is needed. History2007 (talk) 15:07, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Much of the music section, before & after the trim, consists of pointless notes that it is included in this or that famous Mass or requiem setting, when it naturally would be. Where have all the others gone? There should probably also be Agnus Dei (liturgy). Then the rest can be renamed "Lamb of God" and expanded for EO & Protestant theology, and art.

Yes, liturgy should probably get its own item. I trimmed some unsourced things in music, some were video game refs, some were not, but none had WP:RS. If you know some of them to be valid and have sources then put them back and they can move to the music page later, but having all kinds of unsourced items just does not seem right. If you know the music parts well, it would probably better if you do that, so it will be done right. Thanks.History2007 (talk) 15:49, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Anyway, I built the new pages, as above. The music page needs more references and is a short stub now, but I may expand that and add references if and when I get to it. If you have good refs, please expand that. Thanks. History2007 (talk) 19:52, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
