Thanks for the suggestions, MJ.  I’ve updated the shared collections at https://faithlife.com/logos-library-theology-denomination-tags/documents

Here’s a copy of the updated spreadsheet: 4478.Denominations and Theology 02 April 2014.zip

Please feel free to come back to me on any of this.

Note: There are no ready-made collections for denominations with only a small number of authors, but they are listed in the spreadsheet, so the rule for the collection can be found on the Logos Rules worksheet.

Catholic
Cavins, Jeff – added
Gray, Tim – now Tim Gray.  He was recorded as Timothy Gray.  Logos uses both Timothy Gray and Tim Gray.
Abbe, Paul – added

Pre-schism
Abba Theodosius of Alexandria – added as Theodosius of Alexandria
Eustathius of Trake – info?  Is this Eustathius the same as the Bishop of Antioch?  Is there any information on him anywhere?

Methodist/Wesleyan
Beet, Joseph Agar – already Wesleyan (Theology)

Dutch Reformed
Louis Berkhof – labelled Christian Reformed Church in North America, which has roots in the Dutch Reformed Church

Eastern Orthodox (Byzantine)
Bernardakis, D. N. – added (Greek Orthodox)
Bounds, Edward M. – Methodist?
Engleman, Dennis Eugene – added
Farley, Lawrence R. – added (Orthodox Church in America)
Guettee, Wladimir – added (Greek Orthodox)

The Holy Holy Governing Synod of Russia (Russian Orthodox) – Typo?  Added Most Holy Governing Synod of Russia

Puritan – NB. This is a Theology
Brooks, Thomas – already Puritan
Clarkson, David – added
Howe, John – already Puritan

Reformed – NB.  This is a Theology
Bullinger, Heinrich = Bullinger, Henry – already Reformed (and always Henry in Logos?)
Calvin, John – already Reformed

American independent evangelical
Chan, Francis – simply labelled Evangelical (theology)

The Gospel Coalition – added Evangelical (theology) label, and removed ‘The’


Anglican
Coverdale, Myles – was incorrectly named Miles, now corrected
Dearmer, Percy – added
Ellicott, Charles J. – added
Farrar, Frederic William – already Anglican
Her Majesty's Printing Office – not really Anglican?

The Church of England – added as Church of England
The Church Service Society – added as Church Service Society

Episcopal
The Protestant Episcopal Church – added Protestant Episcopal Church

Andrew,

these guys take pride in being reformed/calvinist, please don't list them as Evangelical.

Thanks for the feedback, Mick.

The Gospel Coalition produce Themelios, which is advertised by Logos as follows: "Themelios is an international evangelical theological journal".  Therefore, it seemed reasonable to label them as Evangelical, as well as Reformed (Calvinist).  Have I misunderstood something?

Mick, 

TGC explictly identifies themselves as evangelical AND reformed.

"We are a fellowship of evangelical churches deeply committed to renewing our faith in the gospel of Christ and to reforming our ministry practices to conform fully to the Scriptures."
--Foundation Documents (The Gospel Coalition, 2008).

"Evangelical" is a label a lot of Reformed churches use to show their commitment to the intentional spread of the Gospel and to separate themselves from any notions of hyper-Calvinism.  (Though, one could argue about exactly what the Evangelical label does communicate.)

Andrew,

no, it rather seems I misread your post. Somehow I understood that you wanted to change the main categorization which is Reformed (Calvinist) into Evangelical - to give them an "E" as evangelical in addition to the main categorization is fine with me. Sorry for the confusion.

I meant to comment above that I love the new ability to filter the Library by collection in Logos 5.2a, which means that using these collections, we can now filter the Library by denomination, theology, etc.  As this also works for Search Result Sets, Logos is getting better and better.  Thanks, Logos. Big Smile

Dear Andrew, 

I have not contributed to this thread previously, but I just wanted to thank you for your hard work in producing this incredibly helpful resource. I am playing around with the categories for the first time tonight and believe that they will prove incredibly useful in my study.

Thank you very much indeed for sharing this.

Blessings,

Big Smile

Thanks. Looking at the spreadsheet I see one mistake so let me give you a little church history. The early church comprised 3 groups liturgically, theologically and in communication.

  • Western Church centered on Latin/Rome
  • Byzantine Church centered on Greek/Constantinople now called Eastern Orthodox
  • The Church of the East centered on Syriac/Antioch now called Oriental Orthodox

So your coding for Sebastian Brock is incorrect in placing Oriental Orthodox as part of Easter Orthodox. You could code bother Eastern and Oriental as part of Orthodox without qualification. Yes, the terminology is confusing.

Where does that leave the Copts and the Ethiopians?Stick out tongue

Btw, I just noticed that Wikipedia does not include the Church of the East among the Oriental Orthodox. Just to confuse things.

The Copts and the Ethiopians are Oriental Orthodox. However, Wikipedia in its great inconsistent insight under Church of the East says "The Church of the East (Syriac: ܥܕܬܐ ܕܡܕܢܚܐ ʿĒ(d)tāʾ d-Maḏn(ə)ḥāʾ), also known as the Nestorian Church,[note 1] is a Christian church, part of the Syriac tradition of Eastern Christianity." But you are right that Church of the East has multiple meanings - one to refer to the Antioch/Syriac group and one referring specifically to Nestorians. The history of how the Ethiopians were Christianized from the East rather than the North is quite interesting. The Copts are fascinating for a different reason - were you aware of the Catholic Copts? I would expect Byzantine Copts as well but I've not run into that group.

MJ. Smith:

Yes, but not very centered on Syriac, I believe.

I was looking at "Oriental Orthodoxy is the faith of those Eastern Christian churches which recognize only the first three ecumenical councils—the First Council of Nicaea, the First Council of Constantinople and the First Council of Ephesus. They rejected the dogmatic definitions of the Council of Chalcedon held in AD 451 in Chalcedon. Hence, these Oriental Orthodox churches are also called Old Oriental churches, Miaphysite churches, or the Non-Chalcedonian churches, known to Western Christianity and much of Eastern Orthodoxy as Monophysite churches (although the Oriental Orthodox themselves reject this description as inaccurate, having rejected the teachings of both Nestorius and Eutyches).", "The Oriental Orthodox communion comprises six churches: Coptic, Ethiopian, Eritrean, Syriac, Malankara Syrian (Indian Orthodox Church) and Armenian Apostolic churches." and "Unlike most other churches that trace their origins to antiquity, the modern Assyrian Church of the East is not in communion with any other churches, either Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, or Catholic."

Another correction in the spreadsheet:

1. Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate is a religious order like Jesuit, Dominican, Franciscan so it doesn't belong - its simply Roman Catholic

2. Where the subgroup is Roman Catholic (Latin optional as it is implied by "Roman"), the group should simply be Catholic. That way, Eastern Rite Catholics like Maloney will appear as Catholic which is what should happen.

Thanks again for the feedback, MJ.

I knew I needed to tidy up the Orthodox entries.  I've now done so.  I've also added a worksheet called Eastern, which explains my understanding of the Eastern Churches, including Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic churches.  I'm happy to take suggestions and corrections regarding this.

This has entailed me renaming some shared collections.  Oriental Orthodox is now a Denominational Stream.  I haven't created a Denomination collection for Syriac Orthodox, as this would not currently differ from the Oriental Orthodox Stream.  There is now a Denomination called Greek Orthodox, and I have decided to remove Daniel Clendenin from Eastern Orthodox, as my understanding is that he is openly Protestant Evangelical, and writes about Eastern Orthodoxy (e.g. http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/1997/january6/7t1032.html?start=1) from that perspective.

I take your point about Roman Catholic not needing Latin in brackets.  I'll change this when I find time.  However, I was hoping to include religious communities within the Roman Catholic Church, even though I know they are not Denominations in any sense.  There are a few authors marked Jesuit already.  I'd be happy to receive help labelling others with affiliations to particular religious communities.  Also, if any of the Catholics should be Eastern Catholics of any form, then I'd be happy to change that as well, though I would be grateful if evidence could be provided.

Thanks again.

Here's the latest version of the spreadsheet, including the worksheet for Eastern Christianity: 1440.Denominations and Theology 03 April 2014.zip

I'd be glad to help you include religious communities. However, you need to take into account that orders cross the rite lines. For example, I have a good friend who is a Melkite rite Dominican; I've had a class with a Coptic Jesuit

I can't find the DOCUMENTS tab [referred to in the recent Logos Blog] to add these tags to my Logos library.

I added Author:"Mohler, R. Albert, Jr."

To "Reformed Baptist" which currently has no rules designed to pick up anyone. This should be obvious, he's president of one of the six SBC seminaries, and also pastor of an SBC church. President of the reformed sbc seminary no less :).


Edit:

Under Southern Baptist (which is the denomination, convention is simply where we set our direction)
We should have thabiti anyabwile - who is pastor of FBC Grand Cayman, a member of the Southern Baptist denomination. He is also a Reformed (southern) Baptist. I know this because he preaches at my seminary all the time, because his church is a member of an association that is part of the Southern Baptist Denomination. Clicking the link above takes you to their missions page where they briefly mention their association, and provide a broken link to the assoc page. Googling the assoc turned up the detail that its a part of the IMB, which is of course our missions organization.

Edit:
The author Kevin DeYoung should be listed as Reformed Church in America, which is a denomination we don't have listed yet. In my library all he's written are a few journal articles... But he has more than a few books out there.

Edit: Tullian Tchividjian seems to not be associated with Presbyterianism in the tags. He's pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian in Coral Gables Fl, and is also reformed.

Last edit for tonight. I checked my un-collected which in essense is my entire library minus perseus, and anything edition:user, and minus all of the theology, denomination, and denom stream collections at the faith life group. This left over a thousand titles in my 5k title library that are not tagged, so we still have a little bit of work to do.

Including a few screen shots here - some of them are not going to be categorizeable I think, and others like Christianity Today may well end up just being evangelical (despite having been founded by Carl F. H. Henry - the Northern Baptist).




Once we get these guys done, I'll post more. But for tonight I am definitely done. 3:20am - yuck.
