Talk:Léon Degrelle

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I've previously read the french wiki of Degrelle, and I've seen he didn't continue its studies after the two first years and didn't obtain a BA. More, I have nowhere seen that he had a doctorate in law, even if he began a cursus in law.

I think you have to verify this information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:06, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Note: In reference to the phrase "...Degrelle was excommunicated, but the excommunication was later lifted, after Degrelle's confession, by the Catholic chaplain of the Walloon Assault Brigade": There are several online refenences to Degrelle's excommunication (see the Catholic Herald Archives for Oct 1 1943 at and the Google archive for the Milwaukee Journal newpaer of Nov 12, 1943 at,4999489) but I have a hard time understanding how a lowly Catholic battalion chaplain can overwrite the actions of a Bishop. - R Fitzgibbon — Preceding unsigned comment added by RFitzgibbon (talkcontribs) 23:46, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

I looked it up, and it seems that the excommunication was lifted later, but not by a chaplain, as RFitzgibbon has correctly pointed out. Changing the article now accordingly. Bazuz (talk) 12:54, 29 November 2012 (UTC)


There are four sources for the Ritterkreuzträger, but none is used by the article. One is enough. Which is more encyclopedic? --H2O(talk) 19:46, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
