Merge to section[edit]

This museum info is genuinely interesting and useful, but can someone clarify for me what the notion of having an article called Gallo-Roman, and why this would not be better placed in a "Culture of Gaul" section of Gaul? Djnjwd 17:25, 7 Oct 2004 (UTC)needs more stuff

Gallo-Roman is a commonly user term, although this article does not really do it justice. Its poorly referenced, and the first two sections on the gallic empire and christianity are more disambiguation than anything else. The list of remains is useful, but there needs to be more introductory material to the article and there needs to be some new sections that discuss:
  • the process of romanisation in the first centuries bce and ce
  • the 'gallo' component (what made Gallo Roman culture different from other areas)
  • second century overview
  • third century disruptions (invasions and fortifications)
  • (the existing brief gallic empire part would go here)
  • late empire
  • (the existing christian bit woud go here, perhaps some more on Gregory of Tours etc)

Excellent! You're on! Shall I set up the sub-sections? If you do them, add a Main article... header wherever the specific material of the subsection is already covered in depth elsewhere.--Wetman 23:05, 14 July 2005 (UTC)


This article seems to contradict itself in that the introduction seems to limit 'Gallo-Roman' culture to what would become the Occitan region, while the body of the article mentions Ingelheim, Trier, Lyon, Périgueux and the Valais as Gallo-Roman sites. I think the timing here is wrong: the introduction should argue that Gallo-Roman culture persisted longer in the Midi, while in the north it was developing into Merovingian culture. In fact, there had been many north/south cultural differences even before the Merovingians. Q·L·1968 08:05, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Note: I've now made a number of adjustments to resolve this contradiction and expand the article. I hope everybody finds these changes acceptable. Q·L·1968 15:39, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Can someone please go into what exactly "Merovingian culture" was? The Franks conquered the area but the character of the majority population and their languages remained Gallo-Roman (in the sense of descendants of the indigenous Gauls speaking Romance languages). -- (talk) 21:49, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Gallo-Romans were the Romans that inhabited Gaul, not Gauls who spoke Romance. -- (talk) 21:28, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

The Gallic Empire was not an attempt at independence it was an attempt at creating new emperors and ended when the last one abdicated and recognized Aurelian as emperor. I am going to fix it now; and the source is solid (How Rome Fell) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:18, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on 15 November 2014[edit]

A protected redirect, Gallo-Roman, needs redirect category (rcat) templates added. Please modify it as follows:

  • from this...
#REDIRECT [[Gallo-Roman culture]]
  • to this...
#REDIRECT [[Gallo-Roman culture]]

{{Redr|from move|from short name|unprintworthy}}

Template Redr is an alias for the {{This is a redirect}} template, which is used to sort redirects into one or more categories. No protection rcat is needed, and if {{pp-protected}} and/or {{pp-move}} suffice, the This is a redirect template will detect protection levels and include them automatically. Thank you in advance! – Paine Ellsworth CLIMAX! 01:40, 15 November 2014 (UTC)
