Long Melford church

Long Melford church (Suffolk), dedicated in honour of the Holy Trinity, was completely rebuilt in the second half of the 15th cent. Surviving inscriptions, glass, and wall-painting testify to the prominence of the Clopton and Martin families, among others, in this rebuilding. Very unusually, some idea of what the interior of the late medieval building looked like can be got from a description by Roger Martin, who was a recusant in the reign of Elizabeth I, and who wrote down all he could remember of the furnishings of his parish church. He also gave details of the ceremonies that made up the liturgical year, which included bonfires, feasts, and processions.

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.
