I'm putting the finishing touches on the BWS wiki page. However, I'm not sure what the letters following the prepositions mean. Anyone want to give me a hint?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

They indicate the case of the object of the preposition: Accusative, Genitive, or Dative. Some prepositions tend to have different meanings depending upon the case of the object.

G=Genitive case, D=Dative case. Some prepositions have different meanings depending on the case.

I'm guessing it refers to the case of the object of the preposition.

Thank you - that makes perfect sense
