In the conclave of 1823, in spite of the active opposition of France, he was elected pope by the zelanti on the 28th of September. His election had been facilitated because he was thought to be on the edge of the grave; but he unexpectedly rallied.

His foreign policy, entrusted at first to Delia Somaglia and then to the more able Bernetti, moved in general along lines laid down by Consalvi;

Who are the zelanti? Who are Delia Somaglia, Bernetti and Consalvi? -- Zoe

The zelanti are a party of monks (new advent mentions them in several articles but doesn't have an article about them).

Della Somaglia is a typo and is a cardinal like Bernetti is, too. -- JeLuF

Can you add this information to the subject page? -- Zoe

I think it would belong into an article about the three of them, not here. -- JeLuF

Nonsense. The Zelanti are not a party of monks. They are a party within the Papal curia, the one advocating a strict, unconciliatory course. I forgot the name of the other party. Str1977 (talk) 17:19, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Possible vandalism[edit]

I'm sorry if this seems odd... but does anyone else get a popup that mentions something about "Butt Crusties" when they visit this article's page? It's similar to what happens when you visit this cached Wikiquote page here --BaronLarf 06:09, Apr 23, 2005 (UTC)


There's not even one source listed here... that's a major problem. Nrbelex (talk) 22:16, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

Neutral Point of View?[edit]

It's worse than that - what sources are used are mainly very old and very biased - Thomas Adolphus Trollope, Francis Burkle-Young (who is not "old" but has some axes to grind), Godkin - surely we can do better than this rogue's gallery of Whig and modern progressive historians. Leo's reign was not without its flaws, particularly in regard to temporal administration of the Papal States - but this is something close to a hack job, and a poorly organized one at that. Quotes are not attributed; no attempt is made at balance; and the organization is lacking. Why does the Godkin quote get an entire section to itself? richardlender 20:18, 5 August 2008

Style Box[edit]

Is this necessary - given Leo's dates?

Restoration of the Scottish hierarchy[edit]

Should this be under Leo XIII rather than here? Hansjoseph (talk) 08:33, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

I removed it from here because I also saw Leo XIII when I went to it.


the town is actually called "Genga" and not "La Genga" as written in the page LAUD (talk) 18:58, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
