Waghemakere Family

Waghemakere Family. Flemish architects based in Antwerp. Herman de Waghemakere (c.1430–1503) was Master of the Works at Antwerp Cathedral, where, in 1474, he was engaged in building the north-western tower to the second stage, and other works, including the completion of the nave, north aisle, and chapel of the Holy Circumcision (1473–1503). His masterpiece is the Church of St Jacob, Antwerp, begun 1491, but he was also responsible for much of the fabric of St Gommarius, Lier (ambulatory, choir, and Lady Chapel—1473–85), St Willibrord, Hulst, The Netherlands (1482–7), and the Vleeshuis (Butcher's House), Antwerp (1501). His son, Domien or Dominikus de Waghemakere (c.1460–1542), assisted Herman at St Gommarius, Lier (1494), completed the upper stages of the north-western tower of Antwerp Cathedral (1502–42), completed the Church of St Jacob, Antwerp (1502–42), and, with Rombout Keldermans, built the Maison du Roi, Brussels (1514–23), the Town Hall, Ghent (1517–33), and the Handelsbeurs (Exchange), Antwerp (1531—destroyed).

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.
