I've moved the article to St Mark's Basilica. This returns far more Google hits that its previous location (San Marco di Venezia), and most of those hits were copies of this page. Warofdreams 18:32, 14 Sep 2004 (UTC)

I have no idea if the recent edits by 198.188.95.132 to this article are accurate, however someone from the same IP address at virtually the same time vandalized another article - so it would be good if these could be confirmed as legit. Pcb21| Pete 21:48, 15 Oct 2004 (UTC)

  • The edits don't look like vandalism, but aren't exactly accurate, either. I'll address them. Warofdreams 10:04, 18 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Refering to the "added information" about a world famous feature of the Basilica, "The 4 Tetrarchs", a late roman statuary

from the time of Diocletian. How can a reference to this be considered "vandalism??? It is 900 years older than the present Basilica. It is a key artifact of Imperial Rome, like the equestrian statue of Marcu Aurelius in Rome.The Horses on public display are fibre-glass, for goodness sake. This is a real, and unique work of art,and it is set into the Basicila like a corner stone. (I'm a professional historian, with major documentary credits.Not a vandal!)Nativeborncal 04:37, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

I think the 4 Tetrarchs should definitely be included here, it is a very important work. I am questioning the 3D image. It doesn't make sense to have an image with that kind of novelty, and requiring special glasses to view it. JohnDilworth 06:28, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

St Mark is undoubtedly the cathedral of Venice --Stefano Remo 22:00, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I'm working at "St Mark's Basilica", and contributions will arrive soon (I'll edit some more Venice churches then). Suggestions are welcome! --Stefano Remo 12:09, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Peerreview[edit]

I see the discussion needs to be stimulated. Please help me! --Stefano Remo 20:43, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Done! I have saved an expanded article removing the tag. --Stefano Remo 00:29, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Gaps[edit]

There are some huge huge gaps here. For example, there's almost nothing here about St. Marks in the 16th century, when the 17th Earl of Oxford worshiped there and is said to have built a house near the ghetto. Normally I find wiki articles -- of course excepting those that have been subjected to barrages of partisan influence usually of a distinctively regressive character (that is, over-identifying with established dogmas of one form or another -- much more useful than this one. I'll try to see what I can find to help fill things in a bit. I'd like to work on some pages that don't have those partisan influences. Cheers.--BenJonson (talk) 17:41, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

The Right Transcept![edit]

The article might well be improved via the inclusion concerning St. Clements chapel, supposedly containing the very relic,that led to the building of the edifice itself! Even the "pillar" within which these "remains" were found forgotten for many years (if we believe any of this story at all.) is supposedly still displayed. Do there not exist any photographs of this Chapel and pillar? By the way perhaps a copy of this painting should also be added? http://www.jacopotintoretto.org/The-Discovery-of-St-Mark's-Body-1562-66.html96.19.147.40 (talk) 16:32, 14 March 2013 (UTC)Ronald L.Hughes

Lack of basic dating[edit]

We are remarkably vague on the building history - "Rebuilt in 978 and again to form the basis of the present basilica since 1647", whatever that means, is the main information given. Johnbod (talk) 14:25, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

Some anon changed all the dates in this edit...I don't have time to fix them all right now, but I thought I should note it here in case someone has a moment. Adam Bishop (talk) 10:53, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Done - that ISP did a lot of that but seems to have been caught on most other articles. None since April fortunately. Johnbod (talk) 13:40, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
