Thanks so much for responding!
The fields will be created to allow Dataview to be utilized. For example, I may make a note capturing a quote I read, which would look like the following:
---- source: [[ForSelfExamination]] author: [[SorenKierkegaard]] primaryTopic: [[faithAndWorks]] ---- If it is to be works...fine, but then I must also ask for the legitimate yield I have coming from my works, so that they are meritorious. If it is to be grace--fine, but then I must also ask to be free from works-otherwise it surely is not grace. If it is to be works and nevertheless grace, that is indeed foolishness." Yes, that is indeed foolishness; that would also be true [[Lutheranism]]; that would indeed be Christianity. Christianity's requirement is this: your life should express works as strenuously as possible; then one thing more is required- that you humble yourself and confess: But my being saved is nevertheless grace. The error of the [[MiddleAges]], meritoriousness, was abhorred..`
I have the primaryTopic field to designate the main topic of the note. I then will use inline links in the actual text to capture supporting topics. As displayed above, faithAndWorks is the primary topic of this note, but Lutheranism is a supporting topic mentioned as well.
So, I then want to be able to go to the faithAndWorks note and create a query that lists all the notes that have faithAndWorks in the primaryTopic field. This is easy enough, and I know how to do this.
Here is where I’m stuck at: On each primaryTopic note, I have a field called Subject that designates what the primaryTopic falls under. For example, the faithAndWorks note would have Christianity as its Subject.
When I go to the Christianity note, I want to be able to create a query (or queries) that lists all the notes that have a primaryTopic field populated with a primaryTopic falling under Christianity. So if I went to the Christianity note, it would list the above example note, since its primaryTopic (faithAndWorks) has Christianity in its Subject field.
Let me know if I’ve thoroughly confused you or not and I will try again!
