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:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style
American Psychological Association
- 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.
Bulstrode Whitelocke (bŏŏl´strōd hwĬt´lŏk), 1605–75, English statesman. A lawyer and member of the Long Parliament, he was head of the committee that managed the prosecution of Thomas Wentworth, earl of Strafford. Always an advocate of moderation, he took part in attempts to make terms with King Charles I in 1643, 1644, and 1645, and refused to participate in the trial of the king. He was commissioner of the great seal (1648, 1649, 1654–55, 1659) and ambassador to Sweden (1653–54). He was elected (1659) president of the council of state after the collapse of the Protectorate. At the Restoration (1660) he was pardoned, and thereafter he lived quietly. The most important of his voluminous writings are his Memorials of the English Affairs (1682), a source work for the period 1625–60, and Journal of the Swedish Embassy (1772).
