Tomé, Narciso

Tomé, Narciso (c.1694–1742). Spanish architect and sculptor. He worked with his father and brothers on the decorations of the sumptuous front of the University at Valladolid (early C18). His masterpiece, described as a fricassée de marbre, is the Trasparente in the capilla mayor of Toledo Cathedral (1721–32), so called from the glass-fronted receptacle through which the Blessed Sacrament could be seen from the ambulatory and also permit light to be admitted to the camarín behind the altar itself within the capilla mayor. Around the glass receptacle on the ambulatory side Tomé constructed a wildly extravagant Baroque confection illuminated from a kind of dormer set high above the Gothic ambulatory vaults from which the masonry between the ribs was removed.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
