Comments:

  1. The lead needs to conform to WP:LEAD. Specifically, it must summarize all major points made within the body of the article. Currently, for example, it does not discuss the section on his early life. There is much more than that, however, so a significant expansion of the lead will be required.
Done
  1. The one-two sentence paragraph under "Archbishop of Canterbury" needs to be either expanded or merged, as it cannot stand alone.
Done
  1. "He attended the translation of Saint Cuthbert's remains at Durham" (Time in England) Is there a Wikipedia article for this type of "translation?" The average person not fully in the know of the subject is more likely to think of translation as in between two languages, so if there is a Wikipedia article, the concept should be wikilinked. If not, just let me know.

  1. "In June of 1108 he succeeded Gundulf as Bishop of Rochester, having been nominated by Gundulf as Gundulf's successor before Gundulf's death, and was consecrated on August 9 1108." (Time in England) This sentence could be greatly improved if it were rewritten without mentioned Gundulf's name four times. I realize it's tricky, since the pronoun "his" could be ambiguous, but it should be attempted, to remove at least one or two of the instances of his name.
Done, good call.
  1. "This step involved him in a quarrel with the Papacy, for Pope Paschal II supported Thurstan, and Ralph visited Rome in 1117, but was unable to obtain an interview with Paschal, who had fled the city in front of an invading imperial army." (Archbishop of Cantebury) This sentence is fairly run-on and should be split into at least two. Also, why is "Papacy" capitalized here when "pope" wasn't earlier on?
Done

To allow for these changes to be made, I am putting the article on hold for a period of up to seven days, after which it may be failed without further notice. Thank you for your work thus far. Cheers, CP 05:00, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
