Kiyah:

SineNomine:

The date (1626)  in the second article is incorrect and should be fixed.

Could it be driven by the potential typo in this resource then? https://ref.ly/logosres/cathdictaddisarn?hw=Archivist&off=420

It's linked from the Timeline tool and it's the only resource in my library that has that date associated with the Council of Trent.

Yes, Timeline Events are derived from dates in resources, so this is probably the source of this error. 

Threads like this are very helpful, and please know that we're continuing to work on all these corrections.

The theme Jesus' Epiphany in Key Passages includes only two of the three epiphanies that are celebrated - Wedding at Cana is missing. See CCC 528 for confirmation.

Adolf Schlatter is listed as both Other Protestant and Lutheran. I believe Lutheran is the more accurate despite the complexity of the German state church.

Not sure what you're referring to here, MJ. Could you put this in a new thread with a title like "Missing Event from Jesus' Epiphany" and provide more details/links/screenshots?

HADITH. It has been defined as “the story of a particular occurrence, and Sunnah as the rule of law deduced from it. It is the practice of the Prophet, his model behavior” (Fyzee, 1967, 19). Next to the Koran, the Sunnah, Tradition, is the second source of the doctrine and ritual of Islam, political theory, and Islamic law. During the life of the Prophet Muhammad, stories about his actions and sayings were collected by eyewitnesses and then told to others. These stories were transmitted by word of mouth. A chain (isnad) of credible transmitters was produced that preceded the text (matn), which went something like this: “Muhammad bin Abdullah said to us that Abu Khalid said that Abu Malik said that Sa’d bin ‘Ubaydah said that the son of ‘Umar said that the Prophet said ‘Islam is founded on five things’.” The hadith were eventually recorded in writing, and a science of hadith criticism classified hadiths as Sound (sahih), if there was no weak link in the chain of transmitters and corroboration existed from others; Good (hasan), if there was a weak link or the character of the transmitter was doubtful; and Weak (dha’if), if there were several weak links or the narrator was unreliable. This resulted in the production of biographical works that described the qualifications and character of transmitters.
Six major collections of hadith were eventually compiled, which were accepted by all Sunni Muslims. They included those of al-Bukhari (d. 870), Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj (d. 875), Ibn Majah al-Qazvini (d. 886), Abu Dawud al-Sijistani (d. 888), Abu ‘Isa al-Tirmidhi (d. 892), and Abu Abd al-Rahman al-Nasa’i (d. 915). The collections of al-Bukhari and al-Muslim are considered the most reliable. Malik ibn Anas (d. 795) and Ahmad ibn Hanbal (d. 855), the founders of two orthodox schools, also produced collections. One collection by Husayn al-Baghawi, titled Niche for Lights (Mishkat al-masabih), has been translated into English by James Robson and published in four volumes. In addition to the hadith of the Prophet, Shi’ites also use those of their imams. Authoritative collections of the Shi’ites were compiled by Muhammad ibn Yaqub al-Kulayni (d. 939), Ibn Babawayhi (Babuya, d. 991), and Muhammad al-Tusi (d. 1067).
The hadith provide a wealth of information regarding the personality, family, and activities of the Prophet and serve as examples for emulation, providing guidance in matters of jurisprudence not stipulated in the Koran. A Western, revisionist school supports the Goldzieher-Schacht thesis that the majority of hadith were “back-projected as the sayings of the Prophet only at a much later date.” Another view holds that the Sunnah is actually the local practice of the people of Medina; but this interpretation is not likely to find acceptance in the Islamic world.

Factbook erroneous labels it as a belief rather than collections (writings) of oral "history".

Inconsistent naming:

  • Shia Islam
  • Sunni (w/o Islam)

Either both or neither should have "Islam"

Sorry MJ but I have to disagree. In his autobiography Schlatter writes that being a member of the reformed church in Switzerland, the unified (German: "uniert") one in Prussia and the lutheran church in Tübingen did not mean an inner change for him. Already in his childhood he had experienced the community between his parents even though his father was a baptist and his mother went - together with the children - to the reformed state church.

Two questions about two famous systematic theologians from the Netherlands:

1. Why is Hendrikus Berkhof listed as belonging to the PCUSA whereas the Amercan Louis Berkhof is listed as belonging to the Dutch Reformed Church?

2. What are you trying to tell me about Herman Bavinck?

This concept refers to a set of inscriptions in Byblos script: renamed to "Byblos syllabic inscriptions".

Thanks, we'll get these corrected. Quite a bit of the data associating authors with denominations came from users, and we haven't been able to review it all (we have more than 100k authors in Factbook), so please let us know if you find other incorrect associations.
