Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

{{Ordination}} is a template that can be used to provide information related to the ordination and consecration of members of the clergy of various Christian denominations as deacons, priests, and bishops, as well as relating to the elevation of cardinals. The template can also be used to provide information regarding the consecrations of other bishops in which the subject bishop acted as principal consecrator. It can be used in the article of any person who claims to be ordained as part of the historical episcopate, such as Catholics, Eastern and Oriental Orthodox, Anglicans, Old Catholics, some Lutherans, etc.

This template replaces {{Episcopal succession}}, which is now deprecated.

Parameters

All parameters are optional. Some are "suggested," as indicated in the TemplateData, based on their frequency of use or centrality to the purpose of the template.

denomination

Entry determines the heading color. Denomination is automatically pulled from Wikidata (P140) if listed for subject. Using the denomination parameter manually overrides what is stored in Wikidata. Unless there is a reason for overriding the Wikidata value, the value should be fetched instead of using this parameter. It is usually preferable to update the Wikidata information than to use this parameter. Entries are case sensitive.
