Welcome!


Great work on the Innocenzo Cybo article so far! I hope you'll stay around and keep contributing. May I suggest that you nominated the Cybo article to appear in the "Did You Know?" column on the main page T:TDYK? Savidan 17:10, 1 August 2009 (UTC)


Great Work![edit]

Vicedomino, I just assessed your work on the Alessandro Farnese page per your request, and I am impressed by the work you put in. If you'd like to take the article further, I suggest putting it up for a WP:Peer Review and then possibly taking it in for a WP:Good Article. Well done! 1bandsaw (talk) 19:10, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Bentivenga da Bentivengi[edit]

Hi. I've noticed that you've changed the date of death of Cardinal Bentivenga on the basis of the alleged participation in the General Chapter of Friars Minor in June 1289. However, as far as I see, this account goes back to 16th century Mariano da Firenze, the author not particularly reliable and - in any case - not a contemporary one. At least Wadding cites only Mariano. However, please note that there exists, on the contrary, a contemporary source that confirm Bentivenga was already dead by 29 April 1289. On that day Pope Nicholas IV appointed Berardo da Todi OFM as administrator of the vacated see of Albano, see: Ernest Langlois, Les Registres de Nicholas IV, p. 977 no. 7225; cf. Eubel, p. 35 n. 3 (Albano). I think that the account of Mariano is simply inaccurate and should be dismissed. At least, it seems not sufficient to put in question the date of death given by Ughelli.

I commented on your concern for overtagging on my talk page. I am not convinced that it is a significant problem. I am hoping it prods the area towards further coverage.Rococo1700 (talk) 05:11, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Review of Robert Lansing (actor)[edit]

Thank you for the quick review of the article on Robert Lansing. I think you also need to delete my user sig from the assessment list at Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Assessment. Thanks again! NotaBene Talk 18:37, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Caravaggio as Baroque[edit]

I hope this is not a big disagreement. I altered your entry for Sant'Agostino in Rome. However, SJ Freedberg's Pelican History of Art review of "Renaissance art" ends at 1600, while Wittkower classic survey of Italian Baroque art and architecture starts in 1600. The latter covers Caravaggio, the former does not. This alone should qualify for this assertion. If you wish I can find other standard opinions, as I said on the talk page, classification can be arbitrary, but there is a general sense that painting styles changed with Caravaggio and the Caracci, and that this was part of a new trend, even though each of these artists would not have necessarily seen themselves as revolutionary or a break with the past.

Notability of bishops and the use of Catholic-hierarchy.org[edit]

  • Thanks for your addition of useful sources. As far as the notability of bishops, the guidelines state that nearly all Catholic bishops are notable. Please refer to the notability guidelines WP:CCWMOS on WikiProject Catholicism.
  • I brought up Catholic-hierarchy.org to the reliable sources noticeboard. (see [Reliable Sources Noticeboard: catholic-hierarchy.org] My argument was that even though it is self-published WP:SPS, the fact that it is used as a resource by numerous dioceses, news organizations, as a reference in academic works, and Vatican watchers, allows it to be used as "Self-published expert sources may be considered reliable when produced by an established expert on the subject matter, whose work in the relevant field has previously been published by reliable third-party publications." It is widely used on Wikipedia in other languages. The consensus was that it is a reliable source. Its author, User:Dcheney, is available for any questions you might have. Note also that Catholic-hierarchy shows the actual source at the very bottom of each bishop's page (not on the diocese page). WikiProject Catholicism has even developed a template Catholic-hierarchy.org.
  • Anyhow, my approach has been to get the bishop's pages developed (there are several other people working on earlier bishops) and then develop a more detailed history later; that is why I list each entry as a stub.Patapsco913 (talk) 19:36, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Porto e S. Rufina[edit]

Hi. The source for the real date of Estouteville's appointment is H. Denifle-E. Chatelain, Chartularium Universitatis Parisiensis, IV, Paris 1898, pp. 713-734. Please note, that Piccolomini/Pius II in his commentarii explicitly says that in the conclave of 1458 d'Estouteville was still a cardinal priest[1]. Also the bull of appointment of Rodrigo Borgia as cardinal, dated 20 February 1456, was signed by him as cardinal priest of Ss. Silvestro e Martino (the bull was printed by Ludwig von Pastor in the volume about Callixtus III of his History of the Popes) CarlosPn (talk) 08:56, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

For d'Estouteville birth date, again the source is Denifle/Chatelain, p. XXII-XXIII. It is based on document dated November 1428, where Guillaume d'Estouteville is mentioned as being 16 years old. Denifle/Chatelain accepted this with some reservation, but surely the document of 1428 is much better source than 17th-century inscription with at least one serious error. Besides, it's much easier to imagine that one takes as 80-years old man someone who is actually only 70, than one takes 25-years old man as 16-years old boy. CarlosPn (talk) 21:54, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
And what about Porto-Santa Rufina? Actually, in 15th century there are several instances of longer vacancies in the suburbicarian sees. When Pope Martin V died in 1431, as many as four were vacant, including Ostia e Velletri with no incumbent for almost five years! Regarding Eubel, many of his dates, esp. in the first two volumes, are clearly wrong, but are still repeated on the basis of his authority. I've observed that many such dates were estabslished by him on the simple presumption: if cardinal A died in April 1396 and we know that cardinal B was his successor in his title, then the promotion of B to that title should be dated to April/May 1396 (immediately after the death or promotion of the former). But this is often incorrect and can be easy verified with sources which were available already when Eubel compiled his Hierarchia Catholica. Here is the list of examples of such errors, by no means exhaustive:
  • Angelo d'Anna de Sommariva is listed by Eubel as having been promoted from deacon of S. Lucia to priest of S. Pudenziana in May 1396, shortly after the death previous cardinal of S. Pudenziana, Bartolomeo Mezzavacca. But actually Angelo d'Anna in 1399 was still cardinal deacon of S. Lucia (Ann.Eccl., XXVII, p. 54). His place in the subscriptions of the electoral capitulation and in the oath in conclave of 1404 (published by Souchon, I, 280-284 and [2][3]) strongly suggests that his promotion took place after the second consistory of Boniface IX (27 Feb 1402), for he is precided by the cardinal priest Antonio Gaetani of S. Cecilia;
  • Angelo Acciaioli, according to Eubel (apparently based on Gams) should have been promoted to the see of Ostia on 28 Aug 1397, shortly after the death of Philipp d'Alencon. But in the papal documents issued between 1399 and 1403 he is constantly referred to as priest of S. Lorenzo in Damaso (Ann.Eccl., XXVII, p. 51, 66, 101). He subscribed as such even in the papal conclave of October 1404 (Souchon, I, p. 280-284). Only by the coronation of Innocent VII in November 1404 he is listed as bishop of Ostia[4], which allows to put his promotion at the time immediately after the election of this Pope at the turn of Oct/Nov 1404, promotion surely made because there was no cardinal bishop at that time in Roman Obedience, esp. there was no bishop of Ostia to anoint the new Pope. Similarily, when the see of Ostia became vacant in 1294, the newly elected pope Celestine V filled the vacancy before being consecrated
  • Jorge da Costa, according to Eubel, was translated from the title of Ss. Marcellino e Pietro to S. Maria in Trastevere in November 1484 (Eubel, II, p. 17). But he himself cited acts of the consistory of 20 Dec 1484, where da Costa is still listed with his former title, while the note about his translation indicates only that it took place sometime after the death of Stefano Nardini (22 Oct 1484).
  • Giovanni Battista Zeno should have been promoted to cardinal priest of S. Anastasia as early as March 1470 (apparently only on the basis of episcopal appointment), although in the documentation of the conclave 1471 he was still listed among the cardinal deacon and the later documents which mention several cardinals apparently in the order of seniority, he was constantly mentioned after Giuliano della Rovere, promoted as cardinal priest in Dec 1471.
  • Pierre de Foix was allegedly promoted from deacon od Ss. Cosma e Damiano to priest of S. Sisto in August 1485 (Eubel, II, 65-66), but this is contradicted by the document in the very same volume (p. 49 no. 530) as well as by the bull of Innocent VIII of 28 Mar 1489 in Codice diplomatico del sacro militare ordine Gerosolimitano oggi di Malta, p. 160-164;
  • Eubel indicate that all cardinals created on 28 Sep 1500 received their title on 5 Oct 1500, and all created on 31 Mai 1503 received them on 12 Jun 1503, although Burchard (his source) himself remarks the only those presen received the titles on that dates and, moreover, some titles given to the cardinals created in these two consistories still had on that dates their incumbents, e.g. Tamas Bakocz could have received the title of Ss. Marcellino e Pietro no sooner than by the end on Nov 1500, when the news about the death of Cardinal Andre d'Espinay of Bordeaux had reached the Papal Curia.

Deletion of Alex Zhavoronkov page[edit]

Dear Vicedomino, can you please take a look at the Alex Zhavoronkov page nominated for deletion? Can you please spend another minute looking at the publications - the author is the correspondent author on most. The call to delete the page was made by the editor, who is anti-blockchain following the publication of a research paper on blockchain technology.

Blockchain technology makes no difference to me. It's not a criterion for notability.
