I've noticed that the word "apostolic" has been removed several times from the title of this church. The reason I keep adding it is that the church's official name in Estonian, Eesti Apostlik-Õigeusu Kirik (which is also on the official website[1]), clearly includes the word "apostolic" in it, and so does a scholarly reference site[2]. Why, then, does it keep getting removed? —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 16:08, January 11, 2006 (CST)

The "other" Church of Estonia

I think perhaps there is some confusion regarding this article. The Church of Estonia article is about the autonomous entity whose primate is confirmed by the Ecumenical Patriarch. It's been edited recently to refer instead to another entity, but there really ought to be two separate articles. Links already exist for this other entity, the exarchate of the Moscow Patriarchate, and it's waiting for an article to be written: Church of Estonia (Moscow Patriarchate). We invite this other article to be written, but it should not replace the existing article. Thank you for your contributions! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 17:41, May 30, 2007 (PDT)

From the standpoint of "Mainstream Chalcedonian Bias", this article ought to be renamed to Church of Estonia (Ecumenical Patriarchate) if the other is Church of Estonia (Moscow Patriarchate). Otherwise, it seems like OrthodoxWiki is "endorsing" one jurisdiction over another. Note, that no one in the world, except the EP recognizes the "Estonian Apostolic Orthodox Church". --Aleks 01:05, June 22, 2008 (UTC)
