As three popes in a row have chosen not to be crowned will it be more difficult for subsequent Popes to revive the ceremony (whether or not the next Pope is influenced by Malachy's prophecies and comments on Pope/Antipope Peter II?

Does anyone have a transcript of the coronation? I think it'd be a nice thing to add. --188.8.131.52 02:32, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Investiture with mantum
In the Ritual section, I took the Latin words for the investiture with the mantum, Investio te de-papatu romano ut pr sis urbi et orbi, from the online eddition of the Catholic Encyclopedia (s.v. "Cope"). It appears to me that the Latin is garbled. If anyone has access to a hard copy of the old Catholic Encyclopedia (or knows what the Latin is supposed to be), could they please correct the Latin in the article? Thanks for your help.

Litany of the Saints?
It is not the Litany of the Saints but the Papal Laudes which are chanted at a papal coronation, as they were during the opening procession of Benedict XVI's papal inauguration mass. They are very similar texts, but distinct rituals with their own histories, content, character and purpose. One of the distinctive elements of the Laudes is the reoccuring refrain: "Christus regnat, Christus vincit, Christus imperat" ("Christ reigns, Christ conquer, Christ commmands)". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:01, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Is this bit of vitriolic garbage really the most appropriate citation to represent the traditionalist viewpoint? While not a traditionalist myself, I have more respect for them than to ascribe to all of them the viewpoints expressed on that webpage. Surely, we can find a better source to support the assertion. If not, I would suggest that the current source does not meet WP:RS and that the "traditionalist" viewpoint presented here is a fringe opinion and is thus receiving undue weight. --Richard S (talk) 15:55, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
In the formula for the imposition of the pallium, an editor has changed "Mother" to the more complicated "Birthgiver", on the grounds that the Latin text had "Genitricis" (in the spelling used at that time; nowadays it would be "Genetricis"). Did it? Or did it always? Google Books gives about the same number of hits for "Genitricis" in the "Accipe pallium" formula and for "Matris" (of course, not "Mater", since it is genitive case), with the slightest of advantages for "Matris". In any case, since it is an English translation that is given, we should take a citable English translation rather than make our own. This last observaton holds also for the formula used when placing the tiara on the pope's head. Esoglou (talk) 15:29, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
I have removed the following "unlikely though it may appear that it will ever be used again", referring to the papal tiara being worn. That is blatantly POV. We have no idea what a new pope may do. No-one expected Pope Francis not to wear the red mozzetta. No-one expected the re-appearance of the white paschal mozzetta or the red ermine mozzetta, but Pope Benedict reinstated them. So we have no way of knowing how likely or unlikely something is or isn't to be worn. The next pope might be a die-hard conservative who wears a tiara, gets carried on the portable throne, and wears mozzettas all the time, or a liberal who abandons more traditional symbols of the papacy. We cannot know, and to speculate as to likelihood is expressing a point of view. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:24, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
