Talk:Pope Martin V

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

this article has some problems with respect to Martin V's election, or rather, how his predecessors left office. I don't know the truth, but I put a small bit on the Western Schism discussion page. Brassrat 15:46, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

If the text is from an unnameable encyclopedia, how do we know the text isn't copyrighted??? There ought to be a date if not full citation for such included text

I submitted it originally. The encyclopedia is a very well known title, this was from the 9th edition from the 1880s, well before the american company that now owns the name bought it from the scottish publishers. Basically we don't name the encyclopedia so as to avoid any suggestion that this use of what is now public domain is sanctioned in any way (it's not) by the current owners of the encyclopedia name -- Malcolm Farmer

So is Oddone his actual given name? While reading, I've found that sometimes Martin's given name is spelled as Odo. Or would Odo just be an informal way of saying his name?

Every other person on Wikipedia is identified by their birth names, not titles or honorifications. Someone should move this page to Odo (or Oddone) Colonna. (talk) 20:51, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

It would be very nice if also this document would be discussed in the article
