Talk:Via Francigena

A little puzzle I don’t understand the logic of this passage.

It is not exact to consider "via Francigena" the whole route used by archibishop Sigeric in the year 990, because the name Francigena means "generated in France" in Latin. So, only the Italian part of the route can be named "Francigena".

Can anyone clarify it please? —Ian Spackman 11:15, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Well, the translation was wrong and so it was the rest. I corrected it. --Munifico (talk) 21:17, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

A note on "comprises" and "includes"[edit]

It comprises several possible routes. This was miscorrecrted to "includes." For those whose vocabulary doesn't include "comprises", an easy device to remember is that with "includes" one can silently add "...and much else besides". If that is not the fact, as here, then comprises is an excellent addition to one's vocabulary. --Wetman (talk) 00:46, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Extraneous information[edit]

There are many events that have happened to transpire at places along the via Francigena that have nothing to do with the subject of this article: an address by Woodrow Wilson, etc. The article is developing a trivia list.--Wetman (talk) 20:55, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

I do believe that the location was chosen because of its historical importance on the route, but I have no evidence for that. If you are certain there is none, I shall be happy to delete it, or feel free to do so. Wall1fer. WALL1FER (talk) 17:16, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

I have got quite a good .jpg of St Bernard. but how does it go on the page assuming everybody else is happy with the idea?

Also, as Wetman says, it is getting quite long; perhaps the "Stages of the via Francigena" could be a separate page.

The subject for example of "The Via Francigena through Lausanne" alone, is probably written up in quite a few books over the years. —Preceding unsigned comment added by WALL1FER (talkcontribs) 17:25, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

My motive for editing in the way I am doing, is partly selfish, in that I am hoping to cycle the route on my wheel chair next year, and to get the best out of it for the development of the route and as a pilgrimage/tourist route. I hope that is ok. —Preceding unsigned comment added by WALL1FER (talkcontribs) 17:30, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Information copied from Category:Uncategorised France articles[edit]

Not quite sure what this was doing there, but I guess it belongs here...Nikkimaria (talk) 03:26, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
The Page Via Francigena, which I have added quite a bit too may be getting too long.

It may be wise to create a page called "Via Francigena Stages" distinct from the existing VF organisational pages, being a newly re-organised and constituted Pilgrim route.

Whether it is Medieval history or Modern geography is a moot point. Links to towns and villages on the Via may be either historical or geographical, depending on the antiquity of the town. One could conceivably link/wrote only about Roman ruins on or close to the via, but that would be another story altogether.

My own interest is historiography, and if such a discipline exists, in Geographical history.

It might be best to describe the whole venture of the new VF (Via Francigena) as Historiography, then different views of it from different historical perspectives would all be equally acceptable, if argued over.

Every generation may see the same historical event differently, and the picture of the differences is what we call historiography, a fast growing academic discipline.

Diverted path[edit]

"some have worked to divert the path so that it passes around this bar or that restaurant!" Wait.. WHAT? Any reliable source? -- (talk) 23:50, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
