May I suggest that #1 above should be moved to Antipope Benedict XIII? - Montréalais

Me too!. Err, I mean, I wanted to include the fact that he moved to the seaside fortress of Peñíscola. But I don't know the date, so I couldn't shove it. -- Error

Fear of 13[edit]

Removed because lack of citation. Note also that in the same century, two other popes took # 13 (Innocent XIII, just preceding, and Clement XIII three popes later), so it's not enough to say that fear of the number 13 was rampant at the time. -- Myke Cuthbert (talk) 20:02, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Early actions removal[edit]

In redoing several of the conclaves from the 17th century as well as the 1724 one that elected Benedict XIII, I've been relying heavily on Baumgartner's recent work Behind Closed Doors. His assessment of Triple Crown is that it was an entertaining but inaccurate source, because it reported every rumour and scandal as fact. Given this critique and the content included here, I've removed it. If anyone has objections, I'd be happy to discuss. TonyBallioni (talk) 01:52, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

Congratulations! Triple Crown is scandalously bad, and appears too often in Wikipedia because it is accessible and it is in English. It is cited by people who aren't familiar with the topic they are working on. --Vicedomino (talk) 19:36, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Image: Benedict XIII plaque[edit]

Reading the placque, it becomes apparent immediately that the contents has nothing to do with Benedict XIII except as a date. The text has to do with the dedication of a staircase built at the expense of the French Cardinal Melchior de Polignac. I think the image should be removed. --Vicedomino (talk) 19:39, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
