The OrthodoxWiki editors have taken St. John of Damascus as their heavenly patron and intercessor as they seek to further the worship and knowledge of the All-Holy Trinity and the faith of the Orthodox Church by means of the OrthodoxWiki pages. OrthodoxWiki is governed by what is called the Mainstream Chalcedonian Bias (MCB). By Chalcedonian, they refer to those churches of the Orthodox Church who hold to the decrees of the Fourth Ecumenical Council at Chalcedon (A.D. 451). By Mainstream, OrthodoxWiki refer to those 'official' churches comprised of the fourteen or fifteen autocephalous and the autonomous churches generally recognized as the 'mainstream' of the Orthodox Church; for those of us in North America, this will be all Episcopal Assembly jurisdictions and those with whom they're in communion.
- From its 'About' page:
- What is OrthodoxWiki?
- It's a wiki.
- It's a community focused on content creation.
- It's a place for Orthodox Christians to share their knowledge.
- It's international in scope.
- It's pan-Orthodox.
- It's an encyclopedia aimed at producing articles that can be used freely (with attribution), especially for Christian education.
- It has many audiences — it's a resource for non-Orthodox as well as Orthodox clergy and laity.
- It's a discussion forum with attention to the development of documentation to help clarify / articulate some fundamental issues in Church life.
- It has a specific bias.
Although OrthodoxWiki contains many links to external sites, it aspires to be much more than a human edited directory. Encyclopedia-like articles are considered a valuable part of this enterprise. The most fundamental aspect of all this is the consolidation of a 'knowledge landscape' within Orthodoxy.
OrthodoxWiki shines in the way difficult and / or divisive topics are worked out, articulated in descriptive pro and con formats, complete with an outline of different thinkers and their arguments. A solid descriptive overview of some of these controversies simply does not exist, at least in English. In cases of disagreement, OrthodoxWiki hopes to push its users towards a constructive conversation on polemicized issues which threaten to, and in fact do, divide Orthodox Christians.
