Carpenter, Richard Cromwell

Carpenter, Richard Cromwell (1812–55). English architect. A friend and admirer of A. W. N. Pugin, he was one of the first architects of the Gothic Revival to meet with the approval of the Ecclesiologists, notably with his Church of St Paul, Brighton (1846–8), and St Mary Magdalene, Munster Square, London (1849–52), both in a sober and scholarly Middle Pointed style. In 1848 he designed the Anglican College of St Nicholas at Lancing in Sussex, begun in 1854 in a variety of Gothic that owed much to Continental precedent of C13, completed by his son, Richard Herbert Carpenter (1841–93), with other work by his pupil and partner William Slater (1818/19–72—who seems to have contributed more to the design than was thought), and, later, S. E. Dykes Bower.

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.
