  Classification of Religion
Classification is basic to all science as a preliminary step in reducing data to manageable proportions and in moving toward a systematic understanding of a subject matter.
Thus, no classification should ignore the concrete historical individuality of religious manifestations in favour of that which is common to them all, nor should it neglect to demonstrate the common factors that are the bases for the very distinction of types of religious experience, manifestations, and forms.
Classification of religions involves both the systematic and the historical tasks of the general science of religion.

The classification was for a time considered very bold and speculative, especially in his proposal of a Nilo-Saharan language family, but is now generally accepted among African historical specialists.
Historical linguistics (also diachronic linguistics or comparative linguistics) is primarily the study of the ways in which languages change over time, by means of examining languages which are recognizably related through similarities such as vocabulary, word formation, and syntax, as well as the surviving records of ancient languages.
Greenberg's classification was well accepted by historical linguists, who have since used it as a basis for further work.

 Levels of Classification of Faith Groups
Taxonomic classification schemes are usually based primarily on historical descendance.
The problem with strictly historical classification schemes is that they end up grouping denominations together which share a common ancestry, but which are now quite different.
Be aware that the taxonomic classification described in this document is distinct from the traditional sociological method of categorizing religious groups as churches, sects or cults (based on the relative degree of separation from or identification with the local majority culture).

 Climate classification: a historical perspective
This classification followed that of plants (by Carolus Linnaeus in 1735) and that of clouds (by Luke Howard in 1802), being likewise hierarchical, with major categories subdivided, and then subcategories divided again, and so on.
Geiger established the discipline of microclimatology as he collected a wealth of observations to understand 'the climate near the ground' (to quote the title of his book, translated into English in 1960), and its variations due to topography and land use.
Later, the connection to soil moisture was made more explicit in Thornthwaite's landmark 'approach toward a rational classification of climate' (to quote the title of his paper in 1948).

Historically, Salishan was one of the most extensive language families of the Northwest.

Because there is a historical document that describes that Oda Nobunaga wore (by inserting between obi) a set of dai-sho, it was during Tenbun through Eiroku eras (circa 1532 through 1569) that wearing dai-sho pair of uchigatana - that is katana and wakizashi - became a common practice amongst the samurai class.

 Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP 2000)
The purpose of the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) is to provide a taxonomic scheme that will support the accurate tracking, assessment, and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity.
CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in 1980, with revisions occurring in 1985 and 1990.
The 2000 edition (CIP-2000) is the third revision of the taxonomy and presents an updated taxonomy of instructional program classifications and descriptions.

 AAA Statement on "Race"
Historical research has shown that the idea of "race" has always carried more meanings than mere physical differences; indeed, physical variations in the human species have no meaning except the social ones that humans put on them.
Thus "race" was a mode of classification linked specifically to peoples in the colonial situation.
Given what we know about the capacity of normal humans to achieve and function within any culture, we conclude that present-day inequalities between so-called "racial" groups are not consequences of their biological inheritance but products of historical and contemporary social, economic, educational, and political circumstances.

 Islamic Art Introduction
Royal patronage of secular art was also a standard feature of Islamic sovereignty, one that enabled the ruler to demonstrate the splendor of his court and, by extension, the superiority of his state.
These historical works also indicate that only a fraction of such court-sponsored art has survived; objects made of precious materials are particularly rare.
This system of classification is intended to emphasize the overall unity of Islamic art within each of the four chronological periods, while also taking into account the numerous dynasties whose successive reigns punctuate Islamic history and whose patronage had an important impact on the development of Islamic art.

An arrangement of events, from either earliest to latest or the reverse, is also called a chronology or, particularly when involving graphical elements, a timeline.
Even this distinction may be blurred by use of different calendars; in Judeo-Christian cultures, historical dates in an absolute chronology are understood to be referred to the Christian era in combination with the Gregorian calendar.
The study of the means of placing pottery and other cultural artefacts into some kind of order proceeds in two phases, classification and typology: Classification creates categories for the purposes of description, and typology seeks to identify and analyse changes that allow artefacts to be placed into sequences [1].

More importantly, in light of the fact that unforeseeable factors might interrupt markets in achieving their reported levels, the figures should be seen as estimates of potential.
