What does wiki mean anyway?

So do begin contributing. The sooner we have interaction with it, the sooner we get started.

Thank you for the questions. To your first question: no, I don't think we will limit 'patristics' to the first nine centuries - though clearly the emphasis will be there. However, as an Orthodox patristics wiki, we'll retain its openness to the whole of the (ongoing) patristic heritage -- just as we do with our patristics library. So all fathers are open: even the very recent.
This is a very interesting initiative. I have a few questions, mostly details but first a general one on policy arising from the introductory article on Patristics: is it intended to keep to the narrower definition of Patristics as writings upto the 9th century? Also how closely should articles stick to "historical theology" and how much scope is there for ancillary areas such as history, geography, archaeology and language?
As to the scope: the nature of such a project is that it be expansive, so there is very much the opportunity to address all the things that go into understanding patristic contexts: geography, archaeology, language, political events, etc. Just link up a word, and add a new entry.
I've just been working on the entry for St Ignatius of Antioch. I look forward to other people beginning to contribute.
