The biggest problem with this tag is that "historic" is absolutely misleading. We need to distinguish chapels, crosses, religious picture trees (Marterl) to be able to match current printed maps. Many of them are not at all historic, and better described by a generic "place of worship" with a kind descriptor. Katzlbt 07:06, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Agreed. Also not all shrines are wayside shrines. Shrines can be domestic, can be found in forests and all kinds of other places. Indigomc (talk) 16:52, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes the historic tag is misleading.A related discussion was happening here Talk:Tag:building=shrine and here Talk:Tag:amenity=place_of_worship#Wayside_shrines --Muzirian (talk) 09:25, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
These are different kinds of shrines, not was is meant by historic=wayside_shrine. I wouldn't use historic=wayside_shrine for anything that is large enough for a human to enter. That would be a building=chapel for christian religion, and maybe building=shrine for asian religions. --Fkv (talk) 12:02, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

How to classify wayside statues of Virgin ?

In some parts of France, we have a lot of statues of Virgin Mary usually along roads.

Could be:

  • historic=wayside_shrine
  • wayside_shrine=statue
  • subject:wikidata=Q1938795

Along a road, France Inside a cave, France Ireland

Statues like this are common here in Austria too. Not only Wikipedia-16px.png Mary, but also Wikipedia-16px.png Nepomuk, Wikipedia-16px.png Florian, and other saints. --Fkv (talk) 11:50, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
I am not sure if these are shrines in a strict sense, although they are depicted as shrines (using the same signature) in conventional maps. Maybe we can combine historic=wayside_shrine with tourism=artwork + artwork_type=statue? --Fkv (talk) 16:19, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
