"Canon" also has other meanings to the Church besides music.
A Canon can be an ecclesiastical law or code of laws established by a church council.
"Canon" can also mean a list, as in the list of officially accepted books accepted as Holy Scripture. Or list of saints and their days. Andrew 10:16, May 10, 2006 (CDT)
- I was listening to Dr Jeannie's Constantinou's podcasts on the Scriptures just yesterday! and she explained that "Canon" in the singular refers to the canons used to put the scripture together but when in plural "Canons" then it refers to those rules agreed upon at the Synodical councils that make up the parameters or boundaries of the Orthodox church dogma! Cool ... Vasiliki 22:23, August 12, 2008 (UTC)
- Perhaps this article could be turned into a disambiguation page with links to the various uses. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 18:07, May 10, 2006 (CDT)
- I like that idea Joe 2006-05-10
I am curious as to what purpose the unseen part of the coding that ASDamick replaced serves. The internal link to "anaphora" is now broken. --Fr Lev 20:25, August 12, 2008 (UTC)
- If you're referring to the adjustment made on the canon disambiguation article, the idea is to invite the creation of a separate article on the canon of the mass, i.e., canon (mass). Simply linking it to anaphora isn't really appropriate, since the anaphora article is about the parallel portion of the Byzantine rite. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 01:22, August 13, 2008 (UTC)
Ah, thanks for the explanation, Father. --Fr Lev 01:48, August 13, 2008 (UTC)
