The article claims that John XXII reconciled with Michael of Cesena, and cites the "History of the Franciscan Order" from christusrex.org. If you read the "History of the Franciscan Order," it says that Michael died in 1342, eight years after John, still holding the seal of the Order--that is, still claiming to be the rightful minister-general. This is confirmed by the more reliable source, John Moorman, "A History of the Franiciscan Order," (Oxford, 1968), 330. Piperheid (talk) 20:01, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
I don't consider it necessary to include a Trivia section at all (is discouraged). Moreover, I don't think we need to mention the problem of numbering of the popes with the name John as there is a reference on top of the page regarding the issue.--Kojozone (talk) 09:48, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
It seems that the sentence " John XXII's actions thus demolished the fictitious structure that gave the appearance of absolute poverty to the life of the Franciscan friars" found at the end of the first paragraph in the section titled "Franciscan Poverty" is problematic as it uses strong rhetorical language and seems to occupy the same position as John. --Trickstyhobbit (talk) 14:09, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
