ascension

Religious sense - shouldn't this be capitalized? SemperBlotto 12:28, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

I have made a new entry with that sense and the day of its celebration. Should this now become rfd-redundant? DCDuring TALK 12:39, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

It could be capitalized, and often is, but there is a lot of lower case also. Without counting specifically, "The Ascension" on its own is usually upper case, but "the ascension into heaven" is lower.
But I think there is enough mileage to keep the separate upper case entry, and remove (or make some reference) to the lower case. Ascension is a religious sense is idiomatic, as the sense of heaven being "up there" is purely symbolic.--Dmol 13:40, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

the lower case version is the first sense. - TheDaveRoss 23:56, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
