THanks! I have changed vague "many" into "several", as well as added ref to a modern author effectively backing up the same view on obsoleteness of p.c up to the times of Constantine.Arildnordby (talk) 09:44, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
That leaves only one thing undone that is expanding the lead. Here we can see that many references lack accessdate which should be put. RRD13 (talk) 04:16, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
I expanded the lead in the "only way possible", namely to briefly describe the different stages in the historical application of the punishment. Thus, the lead is now a micro-article on its own, without the detailed referencing and quoting contained in main article.Arildnordby (talk) 12:54, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Addition of accessdates is still left. Hope you solve it soon. RRD13 (talk) 13:02, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Wouldn't it be sufficient to just add accesdates in the bibliographical section, rather than in the main text as well? After all, the links in the main text are just the same links as in the biblio, only page specification included?Arildnordby (talk) 13:07, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
