Catalan contentEdit

I have removed the following sentence as not being useful for readers in English language Wikipedia:

There is a very old song in Catalan San Gil: "San Gil n'ere un diumentge de l'any 1810 Fan festa a Garigueille per lo glorios San Gil ....Es ben apropriat Lo Gran San Gil Abat: Fa bé per mal d'orel.les, fa bé per mal de cap".

If an English translation can be provided, that might be worth including. I am unable to tell what this song is about or if its content is worth mentioning, even without a translation. - BanyanTree 21:56, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Two Saint GilesEdit

Saint Giles, Abbot........ there were two...... and both are confused in the article page......

Saint Giles commemorated by Martyrology of Bede and Ado is of the end of the seventh century..... 1st of September.....

....."some by mistake, have confounded this saint with one Giles, whom St. Caesarius made abbot of a monastery near the walls of Arles and who was sent to Rome in 514.... "

"Giles first lived in retreats near the mouth of the Rhône and by the River Gard, in Septimania, today's southern France. The story that he was the son of King Theodore and Queen Pelagia of Athens[3] is probably an embellishment of his early hagiographers; it was given wide currency in the Legenda Aurea (Golden Legend). The two main incidents in his life were often depicted in art."

Not only does the main body list him living first in Septimania and not Athens, but there was no Kingdom of Athens at this time, in fact not for another roughly 6 centuries until the Fourth Crusade. There was only the Eastern Roman Empire. wut?--Sıgehelmus (Talk) |д=) 17:48, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
