Slight rewrite or merge? Edit

Gutenberg himself is never mentioned, only his particular edition of the Bible. So I suggest either a merge with Bible or follow the lead of Bible (Omega IV) and rename the page Bible (Gutenberg). What do you think? --LauraCC (talk) 15:00, October 16, 2015 (UTC)

Simply Gutenberg bible would be the more correct place to have a page on the book, since that's actually a proper name for the object. I'm surprised to see that that page doesn't exist yet, it certainly deserves to exist I think. However, as to the question if Gutenberg deserves a page too I'm unsure. There have to have been precedents for this stuff, does anyone know of any? -- Capricorn (talk) 06:53, October 18, 2015 (UTC)
Maybe the painters on the painting article? Tom (talk) 10:20, October 18, 2015 (UTC)
To be perfectly honest, I never understood the reason for what. For musicians it makes sense because they make an appearance, if only auditory, but what is the logic behind giving painters articles again? -- Capricorn (talk) 05:35, October 19, 2015 (UTC)

I guess you just assume Occam's razor. It's more likely that the real person existed in Trek-verse than someone else duplicating their work. Plus, most artists sign their work, so while not necessarily visible, it's safe to assume it's theirs. Rewrite it just to say he lent his name to that edition of the Bible and move the text from the article to "Gutenberg Bible". --LauraCC (talk) 15:27, April 22, 2016 (UTC)
