"Duke Hugo of Worms" is copied from Catholic Encyclopedia. Such a ducal title, ca 970, sounds bogus: Worms was governed by its bishops: Burchard of Worms was a contemporary. A count palatinate, seated in the Carolingian palace perhaps: Damals war es, als der schöne Graf von Worms mit seinen Mannen...(Joseph Christian Freiherr von Zedlitz, Poems 1859). A Graf, then, not a duke. Anyone with better information? --Wetman 00:25, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

"private feast day"?[edit]

His feast day is celebrated on 16 March, his private feast day on 12 October.

What is a "private feast day"? I've never heard of such. ForDorothy (talk) 00:45, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Still no answer. I've never heard of such a thing. (talk) 12:28, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
The Catholic Church knows of no such thing as a "private feast day", although sometimes the universal Church commemorates a saint on one day and the order to which the saint belonged on another. Since there's been no answer to this question for five years, I've removed the reference. Caeruleancentaur (talk) 14:59, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
