From Memory Alpha: Category SuggestionsEdit

Based on my examples in the nomination for the Category:Religious figures, I think what I really meant for that category to be was for feared or revered gods, and prophets, angels, and other Biblical (or related text) figures, not Kai Winn or Jimmy Swaggert. I think something like Category:Religious leaders might be a good division point. --Alan del Beccio 21:47, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

So, let me get this straight... "figures" would be for gods, angels, etc. Leaders for those who lead churches (ie, the pope, etc...). What about various Vedeks? Would they fall into that category? If so, I can see that beinguseful. We could even possibly break them off into a subcategory of "Bajoran Religious Leaders" -- Sulfur 02:05, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Basically. The term "church leader" can be used to describe your local "priest", "pastor" or whatever else isnt coming to mind at the moment, like I often hear on the news, "Such and such local religious leaders did this or that today...". --Alan del Beccio 23:43, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Ok, following Alan's suggestion I left biblical figures/prophets in religious figures (which makes sense). I also left Emissary of the Prophets, Benjamin Sisko, and Dukat as "figures" because the Emissary and Emissary of the Pah-Wraiths (which I don't think we have an article for) are semi-divine anyway. But they can be transfered over if desired.

I also only just noticed Alan's very sensible suggestion (from 2005 on the figures talk page) to make a list page and let a bot do it...oh well :-) – Cleanse 09:51, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

I wonder if this should be a subcategory of Occupations, since being a religious leader is a job.--31dot 02:18, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
