Perpetual virignity[edit]

Some Anglicans don't agree with this doctrine, is there a refenernce for including this, or modifying the statement in some way? David Underdown 09:10, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

  • The majority of Anglicans do agree with this as a possible doctrine about Mary, but since there is no clear reference to this in Scripture it cannot be a dogma (necessary for salvation).--Lord Balin 02:59, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
The Perpetual Virginity of Mary is recognized by Anglicans as, but not as dogma and is not considered necessary to believe in for salvation. --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 20:53, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Comparison with Roman Catholicism[edit]

It was incorrect to gloss hyperdulia as "adoration". "Adoration" is normally used as a synonym for "worship", and also refers to "latria". But that leaves me wondering now what is supposed to be different between "hyperdulia" and "veneration as the greatest of saints", esp. since that's what hyperdulia is normally described as. More work needs to be done here. Tb (talk) 23:19, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Anglo-Catholic & Continuing Anglican[edit]

I think this article is mostly from the broad-church Anglican view. Information should be added about Anglo-Catholic practices and beliefs, as well as the beliefs of the Continuing Anglican churches concerning Mary (Anglican churches independant from the Anglican Communion, such as the Traditional Anglican Communion, the Anglican Catholic Church, or the Orthodox Anglican Communion. --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 20:56, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Also, I think information about the Marian beleifs of Catholics within the Anglican Use should be added to the article. --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 20:56, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Mary gardens[edit]

Should a section on Mary gardens be added to the article, as they are a Catholic and Anglican devotional practice to the Virgin Mary? --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 20:58, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Early dedications[edit]

I'm sure there were some but they were rare. For (thorough) sourcing on the British/Welsh tendency to dedicate parishes to their "apostles", see the Baring-Gould sources at List of Welsh saints. — LlywelynII 11:33, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
