Date of Death Here: August 21 Wikipedia: August 20

Can we get a source for his date of death that explicitly isn't the Catholic feast calendar? Is this a bald error, or is there some source that gives the 21st as the date of death? Geographyinitiative (talk) 03:20, 3 December 2012 (UTC)


  • Inter faeces et urinam nascimur, from quid de nobis, fratres, qui inter faeces et urinam nascimur...
    • "We are born between (or amid) feces and urine," from "...and who among us, brothers, who are born between (amid) feces and urine..."
    • Attributed to a church father in Freud's Dora; Freud seems to have found it in an anatomy textbook by Josef Hyrtl (1867), where it was attributed to a church father; it may have been invented by Hyrtl. [[1]] For Hyrtl's quotation, see [[2]]
