The improved PG uses one set of eras and era names; the Systematic Theologies Interactive uses a different era breakdown with a somewhat different set of names. Both of these inconsistencies are unfortunate (and, I assume, fairly easily rectified).

I admit that I think that the Era breakdown in the latter is problematic: the Patristic Age did not end in AD 500, and the Reformation did not begin in (or near) 1400. The former classification places St. John Damascene outside the "Patristic" era by a solid pair of centuries; he was, famously the last of the Early Church Fathers. The demarcation of eras in the PG is much better, however non-intuitive I may find the "Byzantine" era.

Is the Systematic Theologies Interactive about to get an Era revamp so that Logos/Verbum 9 can be more internally consistent, or do I need to add this to feedback.faithlife.com?

It would be nice to see the eleven "Unknown" systematic theologies given their correct eras, too.
