Yuioplkjhga (talk) 21:25, 11 December 2007 (UTC)—** It should be noted that there does not exist any Papal Bull Dum Diversas, nor is there a Papal Bull Romanus Pontifex written by Pope Nicholas V. The authors who wrote these books claiming such Bulls and supposedly quoting from them, cannot provide proof of any valid source to indicate the actual existence any of these alleged Bulls. Catholic sources validate the non-existence, and would be interested to see any such Bulls should they exist. The only reference to "Romanus Pontifex" is from The Bull “"Romanus Pontifex" of 25 April, 1506, approved by Julius II regarding the Shroud of Turin. Another mention is the Constitution "Romanus Pontifex" of 23 August, 1873. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Itai (talkcontribs)


This argumentation is not convincing. The existing of the bull Romanus Pontifex of 1455 is denied. As a proof is a link added, which mentions the bull Romanus Pontifex of 1506 [1]. If there is a second bull with the same name, then you are free to publish another article and add a page for disambiguation. I am in doubt about your source. I found no other information about such a bull in 1506. But there are many sources, which report about the bull Romanus Pontifex of 1455, e.g.
Please verify your arguments. Either provide other sources or remove your links to and the neutrality tag in the article.

Web page you quote "Popes for Slavery" is not a reliable source, being a polemical website. on the other hand is a reliable site which carries official documents and the Catholic encyclopedia, and should not be removed. There seems to be evidence that the Bull exists, however the presentation of its content has been poorly balanced. Xandar 02:10, 22 November 2008 (UTC)


Under heading Impact and subtitle America

The information concerning the Johnson ruling by the US Supreme Court was not correct; the ruling removed particularly the right of occupancy; it was only with the consent of the Europeans and the Americans later on. Of course, it said they couldn't have title either. I have added sources to this part of the text.

The other information the Cherokee Nation v. Georgia and Worcester v. Georgia is not entirely correct; perhaps someone can do that adjustment. The court actually reversed part of its ruling, saying that "Indian" nations were sovereign. There are also no references, and links to other Wpedia articles cannot serve in place of citations.Ebanony (talk) 05:29, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
