Cannons, Christian historiography[edit]

At the time of the Turkish attack on Otranto cannons could nicht be used to the extent the article describes - meaning that the citadel could not be breached by cannons... The article repeats the traditional account regarding the 800 martyrs without taking into consideration that during the last 10 years new concepts have come to differing conclusions - see for instance: Hubert Houben (ed.), La conquista turca di Otranto (1480) tra storia e mito. Atti del Convegno internazionale di studio Otranto - Muro Leccese, 28-31 marzo 2007", 2 vol., Congedo, Galatina 2008.--Ruggero1 (talk) 23:25, 2 October 2009 (UTC)


Pure speculation. Not enough resources. It's not ottoman custom to kill clergy in occupied cities. May I mind you that the first Catholic church in Constantinople was opened after the ottoman conquest.(UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 100.2.203.41 (talk)

Update -- were 813 *were* canonized, canonization does not require miracles[edit]

Martyrs are eligible too, no proof of posthumous miracles required. http://people.howstuffworks.com/question6191.htm — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.155.151.38 (talk) 13:47, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Counterattack[edit]

this section title doesn't really fit, does it? 212.59.34.21 (talk) 10:55, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

You're quite right. I've renamed it 'Capture' which seems to fit better. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 11:14, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
