No, don't worry I'm not bringing up religion per se on this list.
Rather, I have a question, particularly for PCC catalogers who work with
materials from and about religious bodies and thought (not something we
very often have a reason to do, here at MIT.)
OCLC rec. #27278373 is a nsdp record for a journal, with a 245 |a
Journal of pentecostal theology. I would have thought, based on the
rule in AACR2 appendix A.19D1, "capitalize the name of a religion, sect,
or specific religious movement. Capitalize also a name describing its
members and /any adjective derived from such a name/", that we would
see: Journal of Pentecostal theology.
Is this a mistake in the record, am I mis-reading A.19D1, or is there an
LCRI I am missing? (I don't see anything relevant in the Cat Desktop
ed. of AACR2.)
For what it's worth, based on the subject headings, it is clear this
journal is devoted to the theology of Pentecostal churches and
movements, not theology relating to the historical Pentecost as written
in the Book of Acts, or relating to Pentecostal celebration and feasts, etc.
Thanks for your time,
