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.



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. Improving articles - Pick an article from Category:Lutheranism and improve it.
  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]

There are still plenty of unused pictures in wikimedia commons.


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).

List articles that could be translated here:
  • Peder Palladius deserves an article in the English Wikipedia, but he doesn't even have a stub. There is, however, a considerably large article at that could be translated. There is some stuff written about him in English on Google Books: [1]
  • The following Lutheran Martyrs have articles in the German Wikipedia but lack articles in the English Wikipedia:ütphen

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.
