New Legacy section[edit]

I added a section heading for Legacy/commemorations so readers could pick it up quickly. Frankly, if the saints infobox was used instead of the current one, that probably wouldn't be necessary.

Plus, I don't have time to edit the article, which IMHO has pretty heavy organizational issues (tho not as bad as Wycliffe yesterday). Anyhow, given my lack of deep knowledge of the very historically important subject, combined with my dislike for philosophical and theological minutiae, I'm not about to touch it further. But for historical figures, distinguishing between their life and acts, on the one hand, and their intellectual or artistic legacy on the other, is a way of organizing articles. Using the legacy section with subsections about Luther's effects on (founding of) the Protestant (or Lutheran at least) churches on the one hand, and fomenting of long-lasting antisemitism in the region, for example, could be a way of organizing some of the sections which seem more properly subsections.....Jweaver28 (talk) 00:32, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 8 January 2014[edit]

Footnote 23 (and subsequent instances) only identify this source as "Froom 1948." The full reference is: Le Roy Edwin Froom, The Prophetic Faith of our Fathers, 4 vols. (Washington, D.C., Review and Herald Publishing Association, 1948), 2:243. Hope this helps! Velirotta (talk) 20:08, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

OSA after Luther's name deleted[edit]

I have deleted the initials OSA for Ordo Sancti Augustini (or in English the Order of Saint Augustine) after Luther's name at the beginning of the article. Luther was indeed an Augustinian friar at Erfurt from 1505 to 1512, but he of course left the monastery, married a former nun, and was thereafter vehemently opposed to monasticism and mandatory celibacy. He most certainly did not die an Augustinian friar any more than he died in communion with Rome. If someone leaves the Jesuits (and indeed also becomes a Protestant), no one would list that person as John Doe, SJ in a biographical article. Thus listing Luther as Martin Luther OSA is rather absurd. IACOBVS (talk) 23:38, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
