Speedy deletion tag[edit]

The speedy deletion of this page is contested. The copyvio material in question has now been removed by user Bdk. The 'Speedy deletion' tag can now be removed. -- Marek.69 talk 03:20, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

I guess it's best to really delete (not only to remove) the revisions that include this odd and blatant copyvio. Btw, the IP vandalized the german Externsteine article a few minutes later.
Anyway, many thanks for your improvements, Marek69 :-) --:bdk: 06:02, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
I think the article is clean now, many thanks to the both of you for your attention and improvements. It is not normally necessary to remove copyright violations from the editing history. - 2/0 (cont.) 07:52, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Church of St.Peter at the Externsteine-rocks?[edit]

In the article we read that there has been a church of St.Peter at the Externsteine. This is a misunderstanding of the cited article of Coppens. He writes that there has been founded a church of St.Peter by Sturmi at Obermarsberg, which presumably was the real location of the Irminsul, or at least one of the locations where an Irminsul stood. I will delete the nonsense.-- (talk) 23:57, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Evidence of an early monastery at the externsteine?[edit]

We read in the article, that there is evidence of an early monastery at the location. Whoever wrote this, he gave a false citation. In the article, cited under Nr.2, You can find no word concerning a monastery of 815. The author, who found the early medieval writings, which speak of the foundation of a monastery by monks of the moastery of Corbie in northwestern France, is Walther Matthes. I will therefore install his work as original source. Rolf Speckner-- (talk) 00:37, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

I have been rereading the second citation on this question. In the article of P.Coppens, I can find no mention of a monastery at the rocks. The article is very interesting, but it doesn't say a word on the theme of the monastery at the rocks. How could this happen? I will extinguish this 'citation' too.
