Untitled[edit]

This page is seriously POV, which is not surprising considering that most of it comes from the very partisan 1913 Catholic Encyclopedia. It needs rewording in many places. I don't have time to fix it now, but someone should look at it. --John Cowan 17:08, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Heh. I came here to mention exactly that. There seems to have been significant improvement since Mr. Cowan posted his notice, but the article as a whole, and some sections dealing specifically with 'heretical' sects, are slanted to reflect a Roman Catholic perspective rather than a neutral pov. 216.69.219.3 (talk) 22:49, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

I have often come across this problem. There are a lot of us out there with a serious interest in religion, real Christianity in particular, and the orthodox view comes down like a hammer. You can generate unwelcome attention just by browsing the bookshelves at a library.

POV language[edit]

I have tweaked stuff a little. But most of it can better be attributed rather than removing. For example "his bitter enemy" => "according to the Catholic Encylopedia his bitter enemy -ref-". Lets face it the authors were knowledgeable about church history, that's why they wrote the thing. Rich Farmbrough, 18:55, 9 October 2010 (UTC).

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 22:35, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Later history?[edit]

This article ends rather abruptly with the Fraticelli still existing in the 15th century...and then nothing. Was the order exterminated through prosecution? Did it eventually merge with the Conventuals? Die out on its own? Or does it still persist? Where are the houses located? Any additional information would be welcome on this important group of "heretical" monks. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 15:37, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
