"Mar" is a title used in the Syrian tradition (both Oriental Orthodox and Catholic) for bishops and archbishops, it is not part of the ecclesiastic's name. The article Mar states, citing reliable sources, that "Mar" is a title "placed before the Christian name". The Wikipedia rule for Western bishops and archbishops is "For bishops and archbishops in the Western world, do not use their episcopal or archiepiscopal title in the article name unless necessary for disambiguation". For Eastern Orthodox archbishops and bishops "the form {name} of {place} is often used, as with Anthony of Sourozh and Gabriel of Comane. In other cases name and surname are used, as in Kallistos Ware." For Oriental Orthodox and Eastern Catholic bishops and archbishops, a similar practice should surely be used.

  • Support per nom. As this article is the primary topic of Augustine Kandathil (which redirects here), there is no need to use "Mar", which should only be used as disambiguation. Can't see any reason not to follow WP:NCCL#Syriac bishops. Jenks24 (talk) 08:21, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
