Opposing and Forbidding concerning the actions and duty of Pope Leo III[edit]

I found a difference in the usage of Pope Leo III in reference to His Holiness duties with the Nicene Creed.

Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church (Oxford University Press 2005 ISBN 978-0-19-280290-3), s.v. Filioque

"but Pope Leo III opposed adding "Filioque" to the Creed, while approving the doctrine"

Some articels reference His Holiness opposing the Filiogue and others reference His Holiness forbidding.

I think this should be corrected and made accurate given the other historical significance —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:27, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Patricius Romanus title[edit]

The article states "Pope Adrian I had conferred on Charles's father [Pepin the Short] the dignity of Patricius Romanus." But Pope Stephen II conferred the title of 'Patricius Romanorum' on Pepin the Short in 754 at St. Denys as part of Pepin's coronation. Adrian became Pope several years after Pepin's death, so he could not have conferred any title on him unless posthumously. Blixton (talk) 18:09, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
