I removed "dominical" as its context was unclear to me.. not that I am a theologian but surely all sacraments are dominical in the sense of the Concise Oxford Dictionary: "Of Jesus Christ as the lord".Andycjp (talk) 13:38, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Anglicans use the term to refer only to baptism and the eucharist, not the other five sacramental rites which some deem to be sacraments. (talk) 21:55, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

British English?[edit]

This topic is about events centered in the US and should not be written in British English. tahc chat 01:37, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

While originally developed in the United States, the quadrilateral's actual significance comes from its adoption by the Anglican Communion as a whole in Lambeth (in central London). Its adoption by the communion is recorded in records such as this one, edited by Randall T. Davidson (originally as Dean of Windsor and later on as Archbishop of Canterbury) which, as far as I can tell, uniformly use British English.
If there is a strong national tie here, it certainly isn't to the United States, and if there isn't one, British English with Oxford spelling should be retained anyway. (talk) 03:37, 9 September 2017 (UTC)
