We have two tags, early-church and church-fathers, that seem to be extremely related. It seems to me that in most cases, they are practically interchangeable. About 25% of the questions in each one are also in the other, and the number could be much higher without running afoul of how they are currently used.
One might argue that early-church refers more to the practice and history of the early church, while church-fathers refers more to the actual men and their writings. In most cases, I'd agree that that's a meaningful distinction. However, here, isn't basically everything we know about the early church the result of the writings of church fathers (loosely defined)?
Would it make sense to make one of these tags a synonym of the other? Or am I misunderstanding how these tags should be used?
