Angellight 888, if you could supply an entry in Phantis for some of the lesser-known saints you mention in this article (even if it's 3-4 lines), it would be a great help to us here! --Irlandos 11:42, February 19, 2009 (EST)

A few of them have listings on OrthodoxWiki already I think. I will try to make some entries as you say as time permits :) Many of the contemporary Greek Elders (who are living saints really) do not have entries yet even on OrthodoxWiki (but there is a book detailing the lives of contemporary Greek Elders). As for the many neo-martyrs during the Ottoman period, all of their lives are listed in a book called "New Martyrs of the Turkish Yoke". The information is all there. Again, will try to make brief entries as time permits. Thanks and Cheers, Angellight 888 23:37, February 19, 2009 (EST)
Also, as an idea, maybe an inter-wiki link system can be created here, betweeen PhantisWiki and Orthodox WIki, so that any links to OW do not show as external links; for example, one would enter something like: [[orthodoxwiki:Kyriopascha|Kyriopascha]]. Just a thought, although I realize many of the Greek related articles/themes should have their own page here too. Cheers Angellight 888 23:54, February 19, 2009 (EST)

DOD - Arsenios of Paros

In this article, under Autocephalous Era (1850-Present), it is stated that St Arsenios of Paros died on August 18, 1877. One of the links, in the main article on the saint, lists the date as January 31, 1877. Which is correct? --Irlandos 11:26, February 20, 2009 (EST)

The feast day (January 31 in this case) usually corresponds to the date of death. The second feast day (listed on the article dealing with the saint), is for the uncovering of his relics (according to the article). Also, the Orthodox Calendar on O-W lists January 31 as his feast day; while on the date for August 31 he is not listed;
Therefore it appears from both articles, that the note in the Timeline article for 1877, should be changed to read January 31, (with Aug. 31 being the uncovering of his relics). Will look for confirmation in a written source beforte changing. Angellight 888 11:36, February 20, 2009 (EST)

Many thanks, Angellight 888! Btw, out of curiosity, am I speaking to someone who has taken holy orders? --Irlandos 11:44, February 20, 2009 (EST)

Welcome :) Thanks also. Actually I had considered it seriously at one point, but no, I am a layperson within the Greek Orthodox Church of Canada. :) Cheers Angellight 888 11:53, February 20, 2009 (EST)
