Comper, Sir John Ninian
His richest creation is St Mary's, Wellingborough, Northants. (1904–31), in which Classical elements made their appearance, notably in the ciborium, and the plaster vaulting in the nave has pendants. He moved towards giving the altar a new dominance in Anglican church architecture, and was a major influence on the liturgical revival: with St Philip, Cosham, Portsmouth, Hants. (1936–7), his ideal of ‘unity by inclusion’, drawing on various styles, combined with a free-standing sanctuary to realize a solution to church planning which accomplished the supremacy of the altar. One of his last works was the altar and reredos in Craze's Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, Norfolk (1959).

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.
