Jubilee[edit]

Which version was this taken from? The 1910 version is in the public domain but the 2003 version at http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/08531c.htm has this copyright notice: Online Edition Copyright © 2003 by Kevin Knight. At the very least this article needs a ==References== section givin the 1910 version credit. --mav 02:04 18 May 2003 (UTC)


too long: jubilee has not the importance as in e.g. 1910/1 (from Germany)

In the US, the Jubilee of 2000 was widely and significantly celebrated. Freder1ck 19:47, 3 December 2006 (UTC)Freder1ck

Merge?[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

The suggestion has been made to merge this article with Jubilee (Biblical).

Against. The topic in each article is sufficiently large as to warrant seperate articles. While the Christian practice may have its roots in the Biblical, it's occurrence, purpose, and practices are completely different. MishaPan (talk) 16:05, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose per MishaPan. I'm removing as it has been up since Nov 07. Johnbod (talk) 17:27, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Comments[edit]

The definition for a Jubilee is the year 49, so as to count a full 7 (example 7x7=49), and no more ;therefore, 50 would be the interrupted count, or end —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.134.91.139 (talk) 20:41, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
