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:

Bradshaw, John

Bradshaw, John (1602–59). President of the High Court of Justice which tried and condemned Charles I to death. An undistinguished lawyer, Bradshaw may have been selected because he had assisted John Lilburne in his judicial appeal in 1645, and because none of the leading judges would act. At the trial he found himself out of his depth. Discomfited by the king's challenge to the court's legality, Bradshaw twice ordered him removed. At the end of the trial, after sentencing Charles as a ‘tyrant, traitor and murderer’, he denied the king's request to be heard. Elected president of the Council of State, Bradshaw nevertheless challenged Cromwell's right to dismiss the Rump Parliament in 1653. A committed republican, he continued to be a thorn in Cromwell's side, being elected to the protector's parliaments of 1654 and 1656, but prevented from taking his seat. When the Rump was recalled in 1659, Bradshaw resumed his presidency of the Council of State, but died a few months before the Restoration. He was posthumously attainted of treason, and along with those of other deceased regicides, his corpse was exhumed and hanged, and his skull impaled in Westminster Hall.

Bradshaw, John

John Bradshaw, 1602–59, English regicide judge. In 1649 he was made president of the parliamentary commission to try Charles I, other lawyers of greater prominence having refused the position. For a short time he was rewarded with honors and offices and acted (1649–53) as president of the council of state. He was forced to retire when Oliver Cromwell dissolved the council, and he became an opponent of the Protectorate.
