Heideloff, Karl Alexander von

Heideloff, Karl Alexander von (1789–1865). German architect. He was Professor at the Polytechnische Schule (Polytechnic School) in Nuremberg from 1823, and wrote several important studies, including Bauhütte des Mittelalters in Deutschland (Masonic Lodges of the Middle Ages in Germany—1844) and Kunst des Mittelalters in Schwaben (Art of the Middle Ages in Swabia—1855). He carried out numerous restorations of medieval buildings, including Bamberg Cathedral (1831–4), and St Jakob, Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber (1854–7). Among his designs for new churches, based on late-Gothic and geometrical principles owing much to Neo-Classicism, St Peter's, Sonneberg, in the former Dukedom of Saxe-Meiningen (1843–4), is probably the best surviving example.

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.
