- In His Footsteps:----
I found the original quote from Clement at www.ccel.org/fathers2/, and am going to put that text back in without commentary, and with the citation. Hope that's sufficiently NPOV. (And no, I didn't insert the original text quoted above, and fully agree with its removal.) Wesley
In my tweaks and tightening, substituting another quote for paraphrase, etc, I've removed the following, which is factually incorrect:
- According to Acts i:21 - 22), Matthias was one of the seventy disciples of Jesus, and had been with him from his baptism by John to the Ascension The author does subtly imply that the 120 gathered about had been with Jesus since his baptism in the River Jordan, which is stretching a point. Matthias is not individually singled out. Does this point, made to strengthen the authenticity of the newly-chosen apostle, need to be discussed in the article? --Wetman 20:11, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
Of the Interwiki links made by a bot a few days ago, all that were in languages which I could make any sence out of (sv:, pl:, it:, fr:, nl:) pointed at S:t Matthew. I changed sv: and removed the rest (don't speak those languages). I also removed zh:, ko:, and ru:, assuming that they too, added by the same bot at the same time, were likely to be false. /Dcastor 02:16, 13 July 2005 (UTC)
I can find no information about this whatsoever. Can anyone elaborate on attribution? User:michaelkvance
Going along with the tradition that Matthias died in Colchis, I recently witnessed a grave marker for him placed in the Roman ruin at Gonio in Georgia (unfortunately the marker gave little information about the source(s) of this tradition). I added this information to the article. --22.214.171.124 17:25, 6 August 2006 (UTC)JDWS
Are you sure that this image represents Saint Matthias? The Greek caption says Ο Αγιος Ματθαίος -> Saint Mattheos = Matthew and not Matthias (Saint Matthias would be: Ο Αγιος Ματθίας).

- I added an image representing Matthias, rather than Matthew. --Aaron Walden 10:09, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Anglican Commemoration date
This years Anglican Common Worship lectionary (ISBN 0-7151-2110-3) describes the commemoration of St Matthias on May 14th, not February 24th. I don't know enough to suggest when this changed or whether either date is 'traditional' Gw russell 20:32, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
Move discussion in progress
- There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Bartholomew the Apostle which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RM bot 18:30, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
- That discussion was closed as "no concensus after 14 days". Anthony Appleyard (talk) 11:26, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
Fox's book of Martyrs
Fox's Book of Martyrs says that he was stone at Jerusalem and then beheaded. Here's the text: "Matthias Of whom less is known than of most of the other disciples, was elected to fill the vacant place of Judas. He was stoned at Jerusalem and then beheaded." Saksjn (talk) 22:18, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
St Matthias' Day
- I've tagged your recent insertion as needing a reference to prove it is legitimate info. Please supply that link before someone deletes it as your original research.
- As far as deserving its own article, that would be up for you to decide. If you have enough material (and references to back up that info), anything is deserving. Ckruschke (talk) 17:55, 28 February 2012 (UTC)Ckruschke
Thank you for the response. The source of my information was a book I read a long time ago called "Everybody's Birthday Book" which had about the days of the year and the special features of them. It was a long time ago when I read it, so I can see whether I can find some more recent sources! ACEOREVIVED (talk) 20:53, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
