Canterbury, Michael of

Canterbury, Michael of (fl.1275–1321). Medieval master-mason. He worked at Canterbury Cathedral, and was the architect of St Stephen's Chapel, Palace of Westminster (from 1292). He was of great importance in the evolution of the Second Pointed style of Gothic, especially through his use of the ogee. He designed the Eleanor Cross at Cheapside, London (1291–4—destroyed); the canopied tombs of Edmund Crouchback and Aveline of Lancaster in Westminster Abbey (c.1296); probably the Chapel of St Etheldreda, Ely Place, London (1290–8); the Lady Chapel in St Paul's Cathedral, London (c.1307–12—destroyed); and the tomb of Bishop William of Louth, Ely Cathedral, Cambs. (c.1298). He probably designed the tomb of Archbishop Peck-ham (d. 1292) in Canterbury Cathedral, Kent.

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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.
