Does anyone know where the quote at the end of the section about the Crypt came from? If you Google the quote, this page is the only hit you'll get.Varlet16 22:43, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

It's a direct translation of an inscription that is found there.Kievia 12:33, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

The use of the term "heathen" in the Expansion section seems a little ridiculous. QuinnHK 07:39, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

- I changed "heathen" to "non-Catholic". I also added a mention of the Capuchin's role in the St Bartholomew's Day Massacre and added a link to the wiki article to balance out the self-congratulating "We've been martyred so many times". —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 11:10, August 22, 2007 (UTC)

I find the 'Visitors to the ....' line extremely biased. Either it should be deleted, or rewritten. Eggertm (talk) 23:02, 27 February 2008 (UTC)


An IP editor keeps trying to add that that the Capuchins "gave their name to cappaccino". First off this statement doesn't belong in the lead. In the scheme of things it is a very minor thing about the Capuchins. Second none of the sources say that Capuchins gave their name to cappaccino. They say the name derives itself from the color assoicated with the Cappaccino habit. Saying the Capuchins gave their name to cappaccino is incorrect and OR. If you fix it to reflect the actual source, place it in the body of the article instead of the lead and trim down your 5 sources to one it may be allowed to stay.Marauder40 (talk) 14:20, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Also please note the following sentence already appears in the article, you are trying to add duplicate information. "The popular name of their order originates from this feature of their religious habit, and after this the Capuchin monkey and the cappuccino coffee are named by visual analogy."

Renaming needed?[edit]

The official name used here [1] is "Order of Capuchin Friars Minor", slightly different from the one we use today. Shall we rename the article?--Jordiferrer (talk) 15:11, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Use of "Father" as a priest title is unacceptable in Wikipedia articles[edit]

In Wikipedia articles, the names of priests should not be preceded by the title Father. Note this guideline concerning use of Father as a title:


Use the Rev. in first reference before the names of Episcopal, Orthodox and Roman Catholic priests. On second reference use only the cleric’s last name. Use Father before a name only in direct quotations.
