For the record

Correction: Because of editing errors, several facts were incorrect in the special section on Pope John Paul II in Sunday's editions. A timeline included the wrong date for the pope's death; he died on April 2. A photo caption misdated the year of the pope's inauguration; he became leader of the church on Oct. 22, 1978. And Time Magazine, not Life Magazine, carried the headline ''John Paul, Superstar."

The Globe welcomes information about errors that call for corrections. Information may be e-mailed to, faxed to 617-929-8230, or left in a message at 617-929-8230.
