Adenulf of Anagni


Secular Parisian scholastic; b. Anagni, c. 1225; d. Paris, Aug. 26, 1289. A nephew of gregory ix, he studied arts and theology at Paris, being regent master in theology c. 1272 to 1288. Of his works there are extant two commentaries on Aristotle, a quodlibet, about ten sermons, and a canonical treatise. He may have written the commentaries on the Psalms and Apocalypse published under the name of albert the great. A canon of Paris, provost of Saint-Omer, a rich and liberal man, he fostered studies, students, and the transcription of manuscripts, among them the commentary of St. thomas aquinas on St. John. He was twice proposed for a bishopric (Narbonne and Paris), but found refuge among the canons of Saint-Victor. He bequeathed almost 40 magnificent manuscripts to Saint-Victor and the Sorbonne.

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:
