There doesn't appear to be a Web source for information on the "Leonine College" and so I somewhat question its inclusion in this article. If information is available about it, I'd love to see an article about the college on the Vincentian Encyclopedia with a link from this article at that time.

I'll leave this question open for a few weeks in hopes that Jimmy727 will perhaps identify himself or herself and then offer some suggestions about how to proceed. If there's no further dialog on this, my inclination will be to remove mention of the college. PatriciaT 18:10, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Leonine College does exist. It bears the Latin name of Collegium Leonianum or Italian Collegio Leoniano. St.John's University Rome Campus is located in its premises. According to New Advent Encyclopedia "Collegio Apostolico Leoniano Owes its origin to P. Valentini, a Lazarist, who, aided by a pious lady, received in a private house the students who could not otherwise gain admittance to the other colleges. This college and the revenue left by the lady were taken over later by the Holy See and a large building was erected in the Prati di Castello. The direction was committed to the Jesuits. The students, mainly of the southern provinces that have no special college at Rome, attend the lectures at the Gregorian University".

I think, you are right. It is very required to prepare an article page about Leonine College as it is founded by Vincentians, and number of Vincentian priests still comtinue their studies there. I hope, the article you mention will appear soon.\ --Toma' 20:59, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
