References[edit]

The article needs more references, especially the part about Anglicanism, as it is fairly long and without adequate sources. ADM (talk) 15:32, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Most of this article was written in 2003 and 2004, when Wikipedia references were rare indeed. It is time to go back and put some in, if you are a willing volunteer. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 23:05, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Church of Sweden[edit]

Section Overview of episcopal churches says:

Others, including the Church of Sweden, practice episcopal polity; the Church of Sweden also counts its bishops among the historic episcopate as do some American Lutheran churches like the Anglo-Lutheran Catholic Church and the Lutheran Orthodox Church.

Which is pro-forma correct but in practice wrong. The Church of Sweden is ruled by congregations elected from political parties of approximately the same kind as in the Swedish parliament, except there are additional church parties that aren't eligible for the parliament. A certain bishop congregation has some limited veto rights regarding religious issues. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 11:58, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

What about the Moravians?[edit]

Dubious[edit]

Section 8 "Anglican Communion"

"Although it is impossible to pinpoint an exact moment for the arrival of Catholic Christianity in the British Isles, we know from the Venerable Bede and other early sources that the faith clearly was planted in Great Britain and Ireland independent of Rome and prior to Augustine (see Celtic Christianity)".

Dubious - Discuss

The article on Celtic Christianity directly refutes this statement. These are opinions not facts. Ericqwerty (talk) 15:42, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

I agree. "Celtic Christianity" (as practised by the early organised Christians in the British Isles) was certainly different, but not independent of Rome. This is fact. The text in question should be removed. --Peter (Talk page) 00:25, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

"Apostle Mark"[edit]

Patriot1423 pointed out that the section on the Oriental Orthodox churches referred to an "Apostle Mark". It's obvious that this was meant to refer to Mark the Evangelist. I changed the text accordingly and provided a reference. I see no indication that either denomination considers Mark an apostle. Huon (talk) 09:53, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
