Catechism merge discussion[edit]

NO ACTION:

I also agree that while there's a close relationship they are not the same thing; non-Admin closure per WP:SNOW -- Kendrick7talk 04:10, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

  • Oppose merge. There are clearly two different topics here. One is a book, which happens to contain the theology of the Church. The other is not a book. Elizium23 (talk) 04:31, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Since the Catechism (one volume) digests doctrine and dogma, it is not speculation; Catholic theology (hundreds-of-thousand volumes) is broader and includes speculation that has not developed to the level of doctrine or dogma. Catechism is a WP:NOTABLE reference work that should remain a separate article. –BoBoMisiu (talk) 14:11, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose. They are clearly distinct topics. However, in the spirit of BWalkerJr's comment above, some of the content of this article could be moved to the Catechism article, and this article should be expanded to talk more about theology as such, as a field of study, and particularly its historical development over time. For instance, the article on Science or Philosophy (or on any particular fields therein) does not focus primarily on a summary of all the knowledge in the field but rather focuses on explaining the nature, methods, and history of the field. Theology, "queen of the sciences," should be no different. -hugeTim (talk) 19:20, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Requested move 21 November 2015[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved. The consensus is to follow the parent article and simply use "Catholic". If that article gets moved to Roman Catholic Church then obviously there will need to be a new discussion for this article's title. Old page history at the target moved to Catholic Theology in order to preserve attribution. Jenks24 (talk) 14:05, 12 December 2015 (UTC)



Roman Catholic theologyCatholic theology – The contents of Catholic theology also had discussed a few critical difference between eastern and western theology that were not covered in this article. The Catholic theology page has several problematic phrasing, such as not distinguishing Roman Catholic from Latin Catholic. Seeing that neither page has grown significantly since the above discussions, I merged the shorter article into this larger one (currently named "Roman Catholic theology") to cover this gap. I would further propose this page be renamed "Catholic theology", if simply to match the Catholic Church article. --Zfish118 (talk) 18:30, 21 November 2015 (UTC) --Relisted.

  • Support, per this ngram. The Anglican and other churches claim to be "Catholic" as well. I think this is only for the purpose of using the Nicene Creed. As the old joke goes, if you ask, "Where is the Catholic Church?" no one will send you to the Anglican church. H. Humbert (talk) 11:22, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose the Roman Catholic Church article should never have been moved to Catholic Church in the first place, because the Anglican Church considers itself part of the Catholic Church (per the two creeds mentioned in the lead of this article) but it does not recognise the Bishop of Rome as its head. Given the first sentence of this article which includes Magisterium and the mention of Vatican II, in the last sentence of the first paragraph, this article is about Roman Catholic theology not Catholic theology. -- PBS (talk) 14:23, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Support It's confusing to have these dueling naming conventions; not to mention the whole "Roman" addition was an appellation created by the anti-Catholic movement of a few centuries ago in order to make the Catholic Church seem like a foreign enemy (q.v. Romanism, Papist, etc.). If Anglicans called themselves the London Catholic Church, PBS would have a leg to stand on. But per Humbert, there's not any actual confusion here. (And there is also some chance for added confusion with the beliefs of the Roman Rite, which is just one of many Rites within the Catholic Church.) -- Kendrick7talk 19:07, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Support. Despite identifying myself as a catholic Protestant Christian, everyone knows what you're talking about when you say Catholic Theology. If consensus is for Catholic Church to be there, then this page should follow suit. I might reconsider if the Catholic Church discussion were reopened. --JFH (talk) 19:49, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Visual editor problem on this article?[edit]

Has anyone else tried to use the visual editor on the later sections, only to find that they're "stuck" in the reflist and can't be edited except in source mode? Deus vult (aliquid)! Crusadestudent (talk) 06:13, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Theology (Catholic Church)Theology of the Catholic Church – Regardless of sub-pages, this is <main subject> of <overarching category or organization>. Per WP:NATURALDIS and WP:CONSISTENCY, see Dogma in the Catholic Church, Sacraments of the Catholic Church, Theology of the body, History of the Catholic Church, Vocational discernment in the Catholic Church, Order of precedence in the Catholic Church, Marriage in the Catholic Church, etc. Jujutsuan (talk | contribs) 22:11, 1 June 2016 (UTC) --Relisted.

  • Support as a correct reflection of the article's contents. The current title implies that the Catholic Church has a different definition of the term theology than the standard one. However, the topic of article is laid out in the first sentence: "The theology of the Catholic Church is based on..." AjaxSmack  02:04, 2 June 2016 (UTC)


  • Observation: 4 votes to move back to Catholic theology, no votes directly against; 2 votes to move to Theology of the Catholic Church, 2 votes directly against. Consensus appears to lie with Catholic theology. Would an uninvolved editor please close and make the move? Jujutsuan (Please notify with {{re}} | talk | contribs) 10:35, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment' "Catholic theology" seems fine by me, but I'm mostly just happy when the project isn't using the terms "Roman" or "Papist" -- Kendrick7talk although no one can yet tell me how many angels can dance upon a pinhead
