Talk:Synod of Bishops in the Catholic Church

Consistency of title
- "Synod of Bishops" is what is used in English on the Holy See website. The Romance languages all use the article. Latin, of course, has no article. I find curious the German term, Bischofssynode, which seems to mean literally "Bishop's (singular) Synod" (the plural of Bischof is Bischöfe), but no doubt that is the idiom of the language, which I don't have time or interest enough to check.

I've noticed several anomalies in the citations in this article.
1) Documents by the Popes are attributed to their given name (e.g. Montini, Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria), not to their name as Pope (e.g. Paul VI). The papal name appears on all papal documents as published. Furthermore, the VIAF shows that most national libraries use some form of Paul VI as authoritative.
2) Documents published by the Vatican have the place of publication as Rome, IT. The Vatican is a separate country and the place of publication should be either Rome (no country) or Vatican City.
3) The publisher of Vatican documents should normally be given as the Libreria Editrice Vaticana, not The Vatican.
