Suggest: Merge tables into one[edit]

I suggest to merge all the tables in this article into one sortable table, so it is possible for people to sort all the contents by name and by years. Vitalikk 15:15, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Rate of beatification exploding[edit]

So, in the 1500 years of the early church, only 1 person was beatified. In the first decade alone of 21st century, more people are beatified per year than for the entire 1500 years prior. Why the increase in beatification? Qwasty (talk) 21:54, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Most saints were popularly declared without a process for doing so. Since most early saints were martyrs, an investigation of the heroic virtue was unnecessary. Additions to the liturgical calendar were also decentralized. So the process we have today came about only recently.
The 20th Century was a particularly violent one and many beatifications are linked to wars, oppression, and revolution. The Catholic population of the world exploded, so that would also need to be taken into account. patsw (talk) 05:09, 28 February 2011 (UTC)


According to the 1908 Catholic Encyclopedia, he was canonized by an antipope, no mention is made for his cause thereafter. And of course, he was not beatified in the 20th Century for which we have verifiable lists of blesseds. I am removing his entry. If there needs to be a secondary list for supposed or incorrectly regarded as Blessed that might be appropriate. patsw (talk) 05:09, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

should canonized people be taken off the list?[edit]

I presume so - is there any need to explain on the page why someone who used to be there is no longer there? E.g. Eufrasia of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 16:32, 24 March 2015 (UTC) When I come across someone who has been canonized I take them off this list. --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 00:57, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

all the names?[edit]

Do we want all the names? E.g. Pope John Paul II beatified 108 Polish Martyrs of WW II. Their names all appear at the Wiki article about them. Should they be put here too? --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 04:36, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Wincenty Lewoniuk[edit]

Can I include him? He does not have a Wiki article, and is not mentioned in the body of a wiki article, but his name (and those of his companions) appears in an external link at this article Pratulin Martyrs Richardson mcphillips (talk) 00:55, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Charles of Austria[edit]

He was beatified as Charles of Austria, no number, and Hungary not mentioned. I suggest he be named this way here. --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 19:55, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
