  1. Western Christianity is one of two sub-divisions of Christianity (Eastern Christianity being the other). Western Christianity is composed of the Latin Church and Protestantism, together with their offshoots such as the Old Catholic Church, Independent Catholicism and Restorationism. The large majority of the world's 2.3 billion Christians are Western Christians (about 2 billion – 1.2 billion Latin Catholic and 800 million Protestant).

  2. Western Christianity is a part of the Christian religion. Western Christianity talks about the religious traditions of Christians whose ancestors were from Western Europe. Western Christianity includes people who are members of the Catholic Church, as well as people who are members of Protestant churches. The Protestant churches were formed by people who were former members of the Catholic Church.

    Compared to the Eastern Christianity article, this one needs a lot of work. Perhaps someone with more knowledge on the religions could follow the Eastern Christianity's format and at least make the article in equal size to the Christianity Template? I think several of the paragraphs on the "Eastern Christianity" could almost be copied onto this one, with just a little rewording. For example: So if somebody has the time and better knowledge of the workings between the Western Churches, could they consider expanding the article? Irish♣Pearl20:54, 21 February 2007 (UTC) 1. Added some more information, but a lot more is still needed and someone should go over to check what I did add. If I have more time, I'll try to research and put more detailed information in, but this was all I could do for now. Irish♣Pearl21:37, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

    I think the opening section needs to be revised due to confusing phrasing. Western Christianity is not something that is inherently "Western European" or belonging to the Western Hemisphere. Western Christianity actually developed in the Eastern Hemisphere and all the countries of Central Europe also practice these religions.

    How do you explain them not being a part of Western Christianity. I'm curious.Ernio48 (talk) 23:18, 17 November 2016 (UTC) 1. Your POV is not verifiable. There are no RSs for the term "Western Christianity" being used in that way. tahc chat 23:22, 17 November 2016 (UTC) 1.1. Could be. But it is against pure logic.Ernio48 (talk) 16:51, 25 November 2016 (UTC) 1.1.1. The logic used is that Christianity is, at its heart, Trinitarian. Groups that deny the Holy Trinity in some way are considered so far outside the boundaries of standard Christian doctrine so as to not be Christian anymore. That includes the groups you mentioned. However, I'm not sure why this is an issue for you. Wikipedia does not exclude these groups from the big tent of Christianity and permits them to self-identify. They are present in the "Christianity" navbox at the bottom of this very article. And they are not explicitly excluded by the definitions in the article. So why has it even come up?

    In the last two months, two different editors added Western Rite Orthodoxyto the introduction. So, clearly, this is an issue that needs to be discussed. Should Western Rite Orthodoxy really be mentioned here? I am strongly inclined to say no, for the following reasons: 1. Western Rite Orthodoxy is an extremely small movement. No statistics on membership are available, but the relevant article indicates that its size is measured on the order of perhaps a hundred parishes worldwide. It is certainly far smaller than Eastern Catholicism, or any medium-sized Protestant denomination. Therefore, if we're not even mentioning Anglicanism or Lutheranism by name in the introduction, it seems highly inappropriate (undue weight) to mention this much smaller movement. 2. Are there any sources that talk about Western Christianity and actually mention Western Rite Orthodoxy? As far as I know, there are not. So it's probably original researchfor us to just decide that Western Rite Orthodoxy belongs...

    why is there such a big gap between the "not be confused with latin church" and the rest of the article? i tried to fix it, but the gap won't seem to go for some reason. Farleigheditor (talk) 11:48, 5 December 2020 (UTC)

    A religious is, in the terminology of many Western Christian denominations, such as the Catholic Church, Lutheran Churches, and Anglican Communion, what in common language one would call a "monk" or "nun", as opposed to an ordained "priest". A religious may also be a priest if he has undergone ordination, but in general he is not. More precisely, a religious is a member of a religious order or religious institute, someone who belongs to "a society in which members...pronounce public vows...and l

    Religious are members of religious institutes, societies in which the members take public vows and live a fraternal life in common. Thus monks such as Benedictines and Carthusians, nuns such as Carmelites and Poor Clares, and friars such as Dominicans and Franciscans are called r

    If a religious has been ordained as a deacon, a priest or a bishop, he also belongs to the clergy and so is a member of what is called the "religious clergy" or the "regular clergy". Clergy who are not members of a religious institute are known as secular clergy. They generally s

    In the Lutheran Churches, religious are defined as those who make religious vows before their bishop to live consecrated life, especially in a religious order. An ordained priest who is not a part of a Lutheran religious order is considered 'secular', rather than 'religious'.

    In the Anglican Communion, the religious are those who have taken "vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, usually in community".
