NPOV?[edit]

This article seems tobe more of an opinion piece on the character of this pope (i.e. an essay) rather than an encyclopedic article. It should be cleaned up to stress facts rather than opinions methinks. (And opinions can be restated in the usual fashion that opinions are represented as in an encyclopedia)

(And yes, I realize this came from a 19th century Britannica, but that does not have modern encyclopedic standards.)

Clement VII's actions againist the Knights Templar[edit]

There should definatly be some mention of how Clement VII and Charles V acted to together in helping to destory the Knights Templar. Many would find it interesting that on October 13 1507 all Templar property in Europe was raided and seized by Charles V of France. This is how friday the 13 came to be bad luck many believe. Also his treatment of the templars could be mentions about how The Grand Wizard was burned at the stake and accuartly predicted that both Charles V and Clemont VII would die within a year as he slowly burned. I think those ideas if researched in a better fashion would be a good addition to the article

Bearded Wonders!!![edit]

Nothing in Catholic Canon Law requires priests to be clean-shaven. Assertions to the contrary are yet another example of the "original research" that poses as "fact" on Wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 4.157.11.90 (talk) 05:38, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Murder victim?[edit]

There is a category about this - where is the support in the text? Charles Matthews (talk) 11:25, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Why is it written here Alessandro was Clement's illigitimate son? In the article on Alessandro it is merely written "many scolars believe" - without any referenced documents. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.113.10.157 (talk) 18:20, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

His View of the Protestant Reformation[edit]

The article states: "However, he was considered worldly and indifferent to what went on around him, including the ongoing Protestant reformation." I find this hard to believe. Anyway, I think this needs a source.85.240.21.40 (talk) 00:25, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Can anyone easily comprehend who his father is?[edit]

How does this guy fit into the de Medici genealogy? Why are his parents' names omitted? --LeValley 00:06, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Why is he considered legitimate? His mother was his father's mistress, not his wife. The declaration of legitimatacy had to have been made after his birth and thus was false. Great, so now the Roman Catholic Church accepts common law marriages. Italians, the most corrupt people on the planet. I'm ashamed to be half-Italian and to carry an Italian surname. Sounds like Italians trying to protect each other, nothing ever changes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.240.141.29 (talk) 18:54, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
