Untitled[edit]

The entry Canossa isn't very good either. Nevertheless, this material should be at Canossa, with a redirect. Without the historical context the story doesn't make much sense... --Wetman 03:15, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

I wrote this article using German sources. Most of the things listed here are more or less considered accepted fact in German history, and therefore not particularly worthy of citations. I tried, however, to cite a couple of things I thought might be curiosities. Is there anything else here that anyone feels needs to be cited or supported? - Che Nuevara: Join the Revolution 16:26, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

What happend to the theory that Canossa was besieged by Henry's troops? His army was strong enough for that. This conclusion could be drawn by German sources too, but it is not mentioned in this article. Obviously only the papal views were given especially Lambert of Hersfeld. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 161.76.98.125 (talkcontribs) 16:18, 4 December 2006

Canossa was besieged by Henry later, after his second deposition. His cousin Mathilda supported Pope Gregory and refused to allow Henry passage through Tuscany on his march to Rome, so he invaded. She retreated to Canossa, where Henry overpowered her. - Che Nuevara 21:26, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

The painting[edit]

"Carlo Emanuelle" seems garbled. Could it be by Carlo Emanuele Lanfranchi, better known as a minor architect? --Wetman (talk) 23:51, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Mount Cenis[edit]

Mount Cenis is in the Alps not the Jura.--Grahame (talk) 00:29, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Noteworthiness and citations of "speculation"?[edit]

"Although no contemporary sources report this, it has since been speculated that Henry spent much of his time during these three days in the village at the foot of the hill."

Is there a source for this? Any such speculation without any evidence or at least a significant authority behind it doesn't seem to merit mention. Anyone can speculate about any particular fact. That doesn't make it part of the historical view. Does such speculation also infer that he was not acting in a penitent manner while in the village or was this just speculating about where exactly he was encamped?Bigjimleo (talk) 20:15, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
