Comments[edit]

Ecclesiastical history[edit]

I've added an {{update}} tag to this section. The section is based on the Catholic Encyclopedia published in 1913 and needs both cleanup (e.g. the fixing of geographical names) and updated information. When the section says "today" that was almost 100 years ago. Valentinian (talk) / (contribs) 20:24, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

(re)founder?[edit]

What does that mean?? --AW 20:23, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Content[edit]

Some of this article reads like a tourist brochure. Besides this, it seems to fall very short on information/detail, considering the cultural/historical importance of the city. Pob1984 (talk) 14:25, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Etimology: Serbian - Jedrene and bulgarian - Odrin (probably) names for Edirne are correct, but macedonian is Edrene (not Odrin) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.142.138.79 (talk) 09:08, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Alternative names[edit]

Andrinople[edit]

Inappropriate Positioning of the Mosque in this Article. Stereotype confirmed.[edit]

I am not surprised that you put a picture of a mosque in high prominence regarding this location. Turkey is supposed to be a secular nation, so I find it highly inappropriate and somewhat stereotypical of most internet sites convering anything in Asia-Minor or the middle east for that matter. The equivalent would be like putting a picture of St. Paul's Cathedral in prominence on a website dedicated to the city London. This is highly objectionable and should be adjusted, and injects religion into an otherwise secular issue. Are you trying to stake a claim as this being part of Islam? Should we in the Western World put Christian religious institutions at the top of all of our web pages too? How ridiculous this site is in such a modern age to promote Islam. I thought we were supposed to be living in enlightened times. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 154.20.199.157 (talk) 04:44, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

York article has a picture of York Minster in prominence. BedriIST (talk) 20:42, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Old name[edit]

Why indicate old name of the city in the opening sentence or opening paragraph? I see in other cities older names are given in Etymology or History sections. Filanca (talk) 09:58, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
