The history of wiki websites specifically related to Christianity is much more recent than that of wikis in general. A wiki website is a site that allows users to add content, as on an internet forum, but also allows anyone to edit the content.

Wikipedia, with over a million articles, is the most well-known wiki website and is a testimony to the effectiveness of wikis in allowing exhange of information through collaborative effort. However, it also leads to politically correct manipulation of articles on or dealing with Christianity that could oftentimes lead to censoring of pertinent information on the subject.

In recent years, in response to some of these criticism, small numbers of Christian wiki websites have been setup. The first religious wiki was Why Clubbet although this has been called a failure by some. Currently the largest Christian wiki is WikiChristian which aims to be a major reference site for all topics relating to Christianity. OrthodoxWiki, for the Eastern Orthodox church and Theopedia, for evangelical Bible-based Christians are two denomination-specific Christian wikis. CARMPedia at is a relative new-comer.

Why Clublet

Why Clublet was the first religious wiki. It has been described as a failure. Between September 1 2005 and November 11 2005, its recent changes page showed a total of 17 posts.


WikiChristian ( is the largest wiki specifically related to Christianity on the internet. It was set-up in late 2004 by an American called Prab R. Tumpati. Shortly after, it was joined by Graham Grove in Australia and from there the site has grown. It was set up in the hope that it would become a useful reference on any topic related to Christianity. Articles do not need to be of a neutral point of view - the author can voice an opinion as long as the author of the article makes it clear what his or her background is. It also intends to be a reference point for historical information, historical texts, song lyrics and personal testimonies of Christians.

CARMPedia at is a relative new-comer. It was set up by the well-known Matt Slick, who is the founder of the popular Christian apologetics website CARM. It is similar to Theopedia in that users are expected to agree to a Protestant and biblically-based approach to Christianity.
