Template talk:Eschatology

The image is great, very Book of Revelation looking. A nav template for eschatology is also great. The logical grouping of sections within the Christian section is helpful.

Two cautions. Eschatology is an elaborately developed aspect of Christian theology, which does not have parallels in all religions. Eschatology in the Hebrew Bible is an important subject, viewed rather differently by Jewish and Christian interpreters. Zoroastrianism has an eschatology, and the role of Kalki in Hinduism is eschatological, but there are very substantial differences. In many ways, the Christian theological term eschatology is "imposed on" rather than genuinely "suited to" description of other religions. Parallel treatments may be hard to achieve.

Second caution. Millenialism is not the main element of eschatology, just a highly visible part of especially American Christian debate. We may need some careful historical and worldwide sources on Christian theology to responsibly apportion attention to various eschatological issues.

PS Please be thoughtful about displacing images from the lead of articles that aid comprehension of those articles and their leads. The nav bar has a priority, but so do such images. Alastair Haines (talk) 03:25, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

hi, thanks for your feedback!

can you edit the template just as you think it is right? --Allstrak (talk) 11:29, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Made the list alphabetical to remove any possible bias and to agree with how it appears in the article texts. 6th March 2012. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:38, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Good for you! :D
I'll keep it on my watchlist and make a serious effort on it at some point.
It could take me six months.
Despite my reservations, I really was serious about it being excellent overall.
There are lots of good editors who can pitch in on this one.
Very best to you Allstrak. Alastair Haines (talk) 11:33, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

This template is too long[edit]

This template is too long. It seems to be a collection of evey link possible. Making each section collapsed whould be a good start. şṗøʀĸşṗøʀĸ: τᴀʟĸ 15:52, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
