SS Saints[edit]

I noticed a half dozen or so instances where, when discussing a Saint, or possibly two Saints at once, the Saints were noted as "SS X and Y", rather than "Saints X and Y" or, more properly, "Saint X and Saint Y". Obviously I eventually figured it out, and determined it was a form of shorthand considered appropriate in a particular field of research, but I do not think such shorthand is appropriate for a wiki article.

I consider myself to be rather broadly read (although not of wikis), yet have never encountered this before.

Thank you for your consideration. 173.77.169.30 (talk) 10:22, 22 March 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.77.169.30 (talk) 10:18, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that. It is confusing. I've removed as many as I found, but please feel free to fix any others you may see.--Cúchullain t/c 14:58, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
It is the normal abbreviation for, in particular, churches and feastdays with double dedications, and for churches in particular is not easily replaced (paying any respect to WP:COMMONNAME anyway). Johnbod (talk) 15:06, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
It's not very recognizable to readers who don't already know all that stuff intimately. It's easily enough replaced by changing "SS" to "Saints" or just saying "Saint X and Saint Y".--Cúchullain t/c 15:09, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
I agree with Cuchullain that in general it is better to spell out saints. Some wiki articles on churches use SS (often with a redirect from Saints), others "saints" as the Italian Church of Saints Paul and Bartholomew. In this case is would be odd to translate "Santi" in "Chiesa dei Santi Paolo e Bartolomeo" as SS. Dudley Miles (talk) 15:44, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

'Celtic'/"Celtic" Christianity?[edit]

""Celtic Christianity" has been conceived of with differing levels of specificity: some writers have described a distinct "Celtic Church" uniting the Celtic peoples and distinguishing them from the "Roman" Catholic Church, while others classify it as simply a set of distinctive practices occurring in those areas.[2] Scholars now reject the former notion" - on that basis perhaps use of or "" should be used in the title, as indicated?
