Davies, Richard

Davies, Richard (c.1501–81). Bishop and scholar. Davies was born in north Wales and educated at New Inn Hall, Oxford. He held livings in Buckinghamshire but, as a reformer, took refuge in Geneva during Mary's reign. At the accession of Elizabeth, Davies was made bishop of St Asaph (1560) and moved in 1561 to St Davids. He was on close terms with both Archbishop Parker and Cecil, advising them on Welsh matters. Davies collaborated closely with William Salesbury in producing the Welsh translation of the New Testament in 1567, parts of which he contributed. But a quarrel between them seems to have left the Old Testament to be translated by William Morgan.

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.

Richards, William Trost

William Trost Richards, 1833–1905, American painter, b. Philadelphia, studied in Florence, Rome, and Paris, and settled in Germantown, Pa. Early in his career he painted landscapes and still lifes, but a year after buying a house in Newport, R.I. (1866), he turned to marine paintings. His light-struck seascapes, which follow in the tradition of luminism, are highly realistic. His work was long neglected, but interest in it revived in the last decades of the 20th cent.
