Comments[edit]

So is the "æ" a ligature, or the Anglo-Saxon aesc? If the former, let's rename this article & do away with this 18th-century pretention.

BTW, there is a far more famous Praetextatus, who was a 4th century Roman, friend of Quintus Aurelius Symmachus -- & advocate for the traditional Roman paganism. So far I guess I'm the only one who has gone looking for the pagan Vettius Agorius Praetextatus & found the Christian one. -- llywrch 05:27, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Propose (and support) move to Praetextatus (bishop) per WP:PRECISION. No other bishops of that name around, and the spelling without the ligature does seem to be more common on Google Books. Favonian (talk) 14:50, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
  • There was a Bishop Praetextatus at Assurae and nother at Apt in antiquity. Srnec (talk) 02:38, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose Powers is correct; "Bishop of Rouen" is a proper title. Prætextatus (Rouen) might do if further precision is desired. --BDD (talk) 23:22, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I do not believe that "bishop of Rouen" was a "proper title" in the 6th century. Srnec (talk) 16:40, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
