(Abstract)

The main  foci  of interest shall be the amount of encyclopaedic knowledge included in lexicographic definitions (as well as its manner of presentation) and the degree of objectivity and neutrality that definitions for religious terms can, and have, been given. The article shall conclude with some suggestions and recommendations, mostly based on the examples of good lexicographical practice encountered during this research.

Keywords: monolingual dictionary, Christian denomination, lexicographic definition, encyclopaedic knowledge, objectivity.
