Solus ChristusSolo Christo – This term belongs in the Latin ablative case: "BY Christ alone", not just "The sole Christ" (in the nominative case, which is for the subject of a sentence).

  • Comment. Wikipedia generally cares more about the most common name, which as you can see from this ngram is clearly the current title. Unless there's some sort of naming convention for Latin that supports the change, I think we should stick as is. Jenks24 (talk) 12:33, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
  • All of the other articles on the five solae use the ablative. This one should be no different per WP:CONSISTENCY. In English it's called "by Christ alone", not "the sole/only Christ" (which is what the current title says). Deus vult (aliquid)! Crusadestudent (talk) 19:15, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
