Some Wikipedians have gathered together to improve the quality and organization of information on Wikipedia relating to Lutheranism. This page - and its related subpages - contain some suggestions for how to go about this task. If you are interested in helping but don't know where to begin, you can look at the "To-do list" below or the Project talk page. As always, please sign up as a participant so that we know who is helping.

Background[edit]

Scope[edit]

This goal of this WikiProject is to improve quality of the information available on Wikipedia about Lutheranism. This includes articles on famous Lutherans, Lutheran churches, and Lutheran theology. It is a further goal of this Wikiproject to help to make this information as well-organized and accessible as possible. Most articles covered under the scope of this Project can be found in Category:Lutheranism and related sub-categories (see the category tree below).

Helping out[edit]

Current To-Do List:[edit]

  1. Lutheranism articles in Draft: Current list is here.
  2. Invite new editors to be participants in the project.
  3. Category:Lutheranism and the sub-cats need some dedicated work (see talk page).
  4. Write a stub - or better yet a full article! - for one of the suggested articles or one of the articles found in other reference sources, but not here. A list of some such pages can be found here.
  5. Continue to check that {{WikiProject Lutheranism}} is on all relevant articles.
  6. Continue to re-check article importance & quality, and re-assess as necessary.
  7. Regularly review the recent changes in this project's articles for improvements, vandalism, and other changes.

Pictures to be added[edit]

Translations[edit]

If you happen to notice a great article in different language Wikipedia, list it here with a link to the original, and a note about the topic. We will then find translators as we need them (the German Wikipedia is probably not a bad place to look for some good Lutheranism articles). If you know of a German article you'd like someone else to translate, you can post it at Wikipedia:WikiProject Intertranswiki/German#Missing article directory, under either the Cultural, Buildings, Biography topics.

List articles that could be translated here:
  • Hermann Sasse has a small English article, while de:Hermann Sasse is over 1,000 words. The German one could be translated and added to the English article.
  • The following Lutheran Martyrs have articles in the German Wikipedia but lack articles in the English Wikipedia:
  • The following Lutheran women have articles in the German Wikipedia but lack articles in the English Wikipedia:

Article suggestions[edit]

Sometimes, you just have to find a nice, quiet place to settle in and get to work.

A good place to look for article ideas, and also articles to be translated, is the German-language Wikipedia, especially the Category Martin Luther and the Category Lutheranism. Another good place to look is the Wikiproject Lutheranism Prospectus.
