Reuveni, David

Reuveni, David (d. 1583). Jewish adventurer who evoked messianic expectation. At the age of about 40, he appeared in Venice in 1523 and was received by the pope in 1524. He visited Portugal in 1525, where he was greeted as the herald of the messianic age by the Marranos, but was subsequently imprisoned. After shipwreck off the coast of France, he returned to Italy where he was again imprisoned in 1532. Although inspiring messianic fervour, he himself stressed he was merely a military commander trying to raise an alliance against the Muslims and recapture Erez Israel for the Jews.

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.
