Art?[edit]

The section on art is singularly vague, uninformative, incorrect, and almost pejorative--clearly written by someone who never actually looked at De Laudibus and has no knowledge of the Cult of the Cross and figure poems. Perhaps there is a Rabanus officinado who cares to remove the text and rewrite it completely.Drmies (talk) 04:52, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

I've deleted the section--the relevant information was already in the article, and I've moved the URL leading to images of De laudibus to the notes. Drmies (talk) 16:25, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

De rerum naturis[edit]

My Latin is not perfect, but wouldn't a more proper translation be "On things of Nature"? Lucretius' work "De Rerum Natura" translates to "On the nature of things" and I believe I have read that in order both to distinguish the two and in accordance with proper grammar, this work is often translated "On things of Nature" or "Of things of nature". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.3.151.3 (talk) 16:27, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Gottschalk?[edit]

I'm surprised that there's no mention of his relation to Gottschalk in this article. Gottschalk's page mentions Rabanus a couple of times. Is it not important enough to add here? Aristophanes68 (talk) 20:28, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
