Nomination process[edit]

What is the nomination process for this Order ? Is it simply the gift of the President of France or is there some sort of Advisory council ? Dowew 01:25, 3 October 2005 (UTC)

Nominations are done by the Minister of Culture after advice of the order council. There aren't any numerus clausus and in practice little oversight on the nominations. --Geo115fr 23:28, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Non-French recipients[edit]

I'm removing Frédéric Raynal and Michel Ancel from the non-French recipients (because they are). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.253.159.251 (talkcontribs) 06:54, 14 March 2006

Online list[edit]

Does anyone know if it is possible to check the list of the former recipients of the order online? Grandmaster 07:07, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

i agree with your pointing out the necessity of verifying this list, as i've spotted some dubious looking line items. i would even go further and delete the list altogether...at least the names that cannot be corroborated. --emerson7 | Talk 23:55, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Relation to Légion d'honneur[edit]

How is this award related to the Légion d'honneur? --Kimon 18:42, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

It is a minor award granted at ministerial level whereas the Legion d'Honneur is the first French award and granted by the President (and government). The former award has been given to many foreign actors, merely as a good photo opportunity for any Culture Minister...

Categories ?[edit]

Is there scope for some recipient Categories here ? GrahamHardy (talk) 16:51, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree. Instead of this unwieldy list, there should be a Category:Ordre des Arts et des Lettres recipients analogous to Category:Légion d'honneur recipients as a subcategory of Category:Civil decorations of France. The two projects listed on this page (France & Orders, Decorations, and Medals) should probably be consulted. Michael Bednarek (talk) 06:46, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
I created the category last week, but came upon this discussion only today! Jay (talk) 07:31, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
I disagree. It would add extra category-clutter to the articles about all those people. It seems getting this medal is not a very defining attribute for most recipients. --Apoc2400 (talk) 11:20, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Confusion about de-grading[edit]

Can a recipient who has been conferred with a higher grade (Commander) be again conferred with a lower grade (Chevalier) order? This is the query at the reference desk. Jay (talk) 07:35, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
