A new on-line encyclopaedia

I have added to my sidebar a link to OrthodoxWiki, an on-line "do it yourself" encyclopaedia devoted to Orthodox Christianity, whose English-language version was started last November. Among the existing articles of interest include those on Holy Scripture (although individual books are not yet treated separately), Byzantine chant, the Lindisfarne Gospels (treated because they predate the schism of 1054 between eastern and western churches), and the Psalter (which emphasizes its liturgical use within the Orthodox churches).

In the meantime there is a similar free encyclopaedia for Reformed Christianity called Tulipedia, which, judging from the paucity of entries of personal interest, has not yet attracted much attention from possible contributors.
