Pilgram, Anton

Pilgram, Anton (c.1450–1515). Master-mason and architect, born probably in Brno, Moravia. His first work was the Church of St Kilian, Heilbronn (c.1482–90), much influenced by the work of Buchsbaum. He was involved in the building of the Parish Church, Wimpfen-am-Berg near Heilbronn (1493–7), and then worked on the Church of St James, Brno (1502). He designed the Judentor (Jews' Gate—1508) and the staircase to St James's School (1510), also in Brno, both destroyed in C19. He moved to Vienna, where he carved the organ base (1513) and the pulpit (1514–15), containing self-portraits, in the Stephansdom (St Stephen's Cathedral). He designed rooms in the Niederösterreichisches Landhaus (Building of the Lower Austrian Diet), Vienna (1513–15), and may have been responsible for the choir of the Parish Church, Freistadt, Austria (1513–15).

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.
