Removal of note about lay individuals carrying Gospel in place of lector[edit]

While the GIRM does not foresee a lay person carrying the Gospel, since it is not expressibly forbidden and it is a widespread practice, a legitimate case for it being deemed as acceptable through custom exists. In such case, the entry should not cast a judgment on the issue, only relaying the proper information-- the Gospel book is to be carried by the lector. Kraft 05:52, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Anglican Communion[edit]

Am I right in thinking that churches of the Anglican Communion still use the same lectionary as the RC Church? Poshseagull (talk) 14:02, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Other Lectionary Information[edit]

This section is notorious for lies concerning how much of the Bible is used by the lectionary, especially the weekly lectionary. Claims such that all of the Bible's verses are used, or all verses of the 4 Gospels are used have been common. They are lies. I have posted an accounting of the lectionary's readings in the past only to find that it has been removed, most likely by those who wish to keep their "flocks" in the dark as well as their paychecks regular. Posted by Warren Vitcenda 8/9/08. This is a true and fair comment. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:43, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Dispite the anonymous editor's overheated rhetoric, he does have a point. Words like "entirely" need to be removed from this article. Rwflammang (talk) 13:29, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

NPOV dispute in history section[edit]

The line:

"Both Hebrew and Christian lectionaries hop and skip through the Torah/Bible and include verses which are generally favored by the bureaucracy of the religious community that designed each individual lectionary over the centuries."

arguably violates NPOV, since it seems biased against lectionaries. What does everyone else think? 23:03, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

It probably could be phrased better. I would suggest that you should change it, and then we can discuss if your version is better for the article.--Riferimento 23:12, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
There has been a bit of clean up on this part of the article. Is it OK to remove the {{POV check}} tag now? MishaPan 00:25, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Attempting to clean up[edit]

Changed capitalisation of headings: see

"most Western Christians (Roman Catholics, Old Catholics, Anglicans,anthonyies,Lutherans, and Methodists who employed the Lectionary of Wesley)" -- what are "anthonyies"? Wikified denominations.

An ornately decorated Lectionary

I suspect the section "How scriptures are chosen" might not be NPOV.

Daily Lectionary[edit]

The history section does not provide any information about daily lectionaries. I am interested in knowing what the logic was in the selection of the daily scriptures and when they came into use in various mainline churches. Does anyone have an idea what the history is or a source for this type of information?--Riferimento 23:38, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

What you want are the readings for the Daily Office.jonathon 20:40, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
Is the Daily office or the daily mass with its 2-year cycle that he wants? If its the office, a discussion of that does not belong in an article on the Lectionary, but on the Breviary. Info about the breviary cycle can be found here: [1]. This article could benefit from information given about the 2-year daily mass cycle which is contained in Roman Catholic lectionaries.

Judaic Lectionary[edit]

The article mentions Judaic lectionaries but only goes into the various Christian ones. Perhaps a link to some history of Judaic liturgy or rites would be appropriate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Shigaon (talkcontribs) 18:51, 9 March 2008 (UTC)


I have deleted a section. [2] I prefer to deal with the subject in one place, rather than adding other views here for a balanced coverage. --Wadq (talk) 16:24, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Protestant Lectionaries[edit]

I came to this page looking for information on Anglican and Lutheran lectionaries, but found most of it about the Catholic one, which was quite interesting, but nonetheless felt that page could do with some text about Protestant lectionaries, if anyone has the information? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ChilternGiant (talkcontribs) 21:48, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
