Pugin, Edward Welby

Pugin, Edward Welby (1834–75). English architect, son and pupil of A. -W. N. Pugin. A gifted Gothic Revivalist, he designed many RC churches, most in Ireland. Early works included St Vincent de Paul (1856–7), and Our Lady of Reconciliation (1859–60), both in Liverpool, and more lavish churches (e.g. Sts Peter and Paul, Cork (1859–66), Sts Augustine and John, Dublin (1860–93), and All Saints, Barton-on-Irwell, Manchester (1865–8) ) attest to his mastery of style. In Belgium he designed the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Dadizeele (1857–9), in Ireland the Cathedral of St Colman, Queenstown (now Cobh), Co. Cork (1868–1919), and in England St Francis, Gorton, Manchester (1864–72—at the beginning of C21 derelict). The College of St Joseph, Mark Cross, Rotherfield, East Sussex (1865–6), was in a vigorous polychrome brick Gothic. From 1860–9 he was in partnership with Ashlin, who continued his practice in Ireland after his death. His practice in Britain continued under his brother, Peter Paul Pugin (1851–1904).

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.
