St. Antimo's AbbeyAbbey of Sant'Antimo – Move requested in order to (a) remove translationese possessive 's and (b) use the more frequent name for the saint in this context; Google search "St. Antimo" abbey = 7270 hits, "Sant'Antimo" abbey = 139000 hits. Tried but failed to make this move over the redirect. Thank you,

  • Support. In general I support use of the original name for Italian churches, as this is the common form used in modern guidebooks. -- Necrothesp (talk) 22:36, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Reference format[edit]

In order to make it easier to expand this article, I'd like to change the referencing system to list-defined, which moves the references out of the main body of the text in the edit window and collects them in the reference section. Unless anyone has any objections I will probably make this change in a few days' time. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 19:19, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Unreferenced material[edit]

Quite a lot of the content of this article is unreferenced and at variance with the reliable sources that I have to date consulted, which are not very many. I have provisionally removed the following unreferenced text from the article:

A Bollandist historian of the 17th century speculated that Pope Hadrian I gave the relics of Saints Sebastian and Anthimus to Charlemagne, who then donated them to the abbey when it was founded. This theory is not confirmed by any source.
The origins of the abbey date to a small oratory built here, one the location of a former Roman villa, in 352 at the death of Anthimus. In 715 it was cared by the diocese of Chiusi.

In 770 the Lombards commissioned the construction of a Benedictine monastery, which had also to act as a hotel for the pilgrims directed to Rome. In 781, on his trip back from Rome, Charlemagne, gave his imprint to the construction

That's not to say that what it says is wrong, though I'm not myself entirely convinced of the value of a baseless speculation from 400 years ago. If it can be properly referenced then let us by all means add it back to the article. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 20:40, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
