Untitled[edit]

Nick cool 05:32, 2 July 2007 (UTC):One time during a war, a heretic invaded the church and cut off the statue's little hands. The entire church itself was reduced to a pile of rubble. But one day a young priest heard a faint voice from the rubble. Digging through it, he found the little statue, and was elated. he immediately began work on a new church to house it. When the statue was finally installed a little voice was heard: "Give me hands, and I will bless you," the priest heard. And so he found and repaired the statue, and was as it is now, in its present condition.

Is this verifiable in any way? "One time during a war?" What war? When? "A young priest?" Who? Cutting off the statue's hands caused the church to collapse? The statue has an audible, human voice? This may be a story that's commonly associated with the statue; in that case, it should be described as such. for now, I'm deleting it. Dyfsunctional 19:11, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

More information on the aforementioned "war"[edit]

The priest spoken of is Fr Cyril, who found the statue in the garbage after the Carmelites returned to their monastary following the Thirty Years War.

I reckon that an encyclopedic point of view is not served by the inclusion of the words 'Protestant Swedish'; "plundered by the troops" or "by the army" (as the case may be) would be more to the point -- don't you think?

History[edit]

Did Princess Polyxena receive the statue as a wedding present or inherit it upon her mother's death? The History section states both. -or did her mother die just before the Princess's wedding? Mannanan51 (talk) 02:58, 23 November 2012 (UTC)Mannanan51

"Caveat" additions[edit]

There are numerous issues with what you are trying to add to the article. First off adding "Caveat Wiki" is not very encyclopedic. Second, you do not provide a single reliable source. Third, what you do provide is original research and not allowed on Wikipedia. Fourth, subsequent edits started to insert usernames into article space, also not allowed on Wikipedia. Fifth, the information is not given in a neutral point of view. Sixth, after I stopped editing due to the fact that I was observing WP regulations related to edit wars, you continued to reinsert your stuff when multiple editors reverted that, personally I am surprised you haven't been temporarily blocked by now for the multiple reverts. Please read the links included on your talk page in the "Welcome to Wikipedia" message on your talk page.Marauder40 (talk) 12:34, 5 September 2013 (UTC)


None of this belongs in the article. It is not sourced, and even putting it here where it simply sounds like rants, is not appropriate use of article talk page space. --(AfadsBad (talk) 15:51, 5 September 2013 (UTC))
