Canterbury, Thomas of

Canterbury, Thomas of (fl.1323–35). Master-mason who worked under Walter of Canterbury at the Palace of Westminster and the Tower of London in 1323. Around 1326 he was building the new chapel at Guildhall, London, and in 1331 was master-mason in charge of the upper chapel at St Stephen's Chapel, Westminster, the epitome of English Second Pointed Gothic. He may have been responsible for the tomb of John of Eltham, Westminster Abbey (c.1334), and for several works at Canterbury, including the gate-house of St Augustine's Abbey (c.1308), the parclose-screens around the choir in the Cathedral (1304–c.1320), the tomb of Archbishop Mepham (d. 1333), and the great window in St Anselm's Chapel (1336).

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.
