A matter of style[edit]

The opening paragraph seemed rather choppy to me, so I've tried smoothing it by combining sentences, and have made a couple of stylistic tweaks which aim to make it more positive. There's also an argument for keeping sentences short, and this is a matter of preference: feedback on this approach will be welcome, as will the name of the cathedral. .. dave souza, talk 15:20, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

The cathedral is Dunblane Cathedral, seat (cathedra) of the bishops of Dunblane. I kinda like sentences with more than one clause, but I don't know if that's a minority opinion or not. Thanks for the edit. Does the rest of the article read ok? Calgacus (ΚΑΛΓΑΚΟΣ) 15:43, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Nice[edit]

Great article.. this could be a FA. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Winterus (talkcontribs) 10:06, 6 December 2006 (UTC).

Less than 20 days between appearing in DYK and TFA. Nice work :) GeeJo (t)(c) • 11:08, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

Stupid person?[edit]

Why does it say stupid person before Dominican? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 83.249.96.204 (talk) 08:49, 25 December 2006 (UTC).

Sorry it just disappeared...

"Expansion into England" correction[edit]

I changed the statement, "Expansion of the order into England was planned by William Hinnebusch, and houses were established at Oxford in 1221 and London in 1224." to, "Expansion of the order continued into England as houses were established at Oxford in 1221 and London in 1224."

Fr. William Hinnebusch (my great uncle) was a 20th century Dominican priest and a historian for the Dominican Order. I have contacted the author cited for the "Expansion into England" statement and he confirmed that he had used William Hinnebusch's book, "The History of the Dominican Order, 2 vols (New York: Alba, 1965)" as a source. William Hinnebusch was not a 13th century founder of Dominican houses. Mphinneb 04:02, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

My apologies for my earlier misunderstanding about this. I note that what appears to be William Hinnebusch's book is available online. It seems to make no mention of Clement of Dunblane. .. dave souza, talk 15:00, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
Your link is to a "Short History". More complete information would be found in the Fr. William Hinnebusch's full 2 volume work on the history of the Dominican order. Mphinneb 23:49, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
Can I just say that it was a misreading of the statement in Malcolm Barber's work that "William Hinnebusch points to the way that the order settled itself in England according to a predefined programme" (Barber, p. 165.); at that point I was skimming this book for background material on the dominicans. On second glance it looks like a silly mistake, so my apologies. Calgacus (ΚΑΛΓΑΚΟΣ) 22:11, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
