Amantius of Rodez, St.


Bishop of Rodez, France; fl. 5th century. Nothing is known of his life and episcopate beyond the fame of his miracles. His name seems to be first known for the See of Rodez where he was bishop before 471, when Euric (d. 484), king of the visigoths, took the city. His biography, attributed falsely to fortunatus, is from at least the 7th, probably the 9th century, and is not trustworthy. A near successor in Rodez, quinctian of clermont, who attended the synod of Agde in 506, paid great honor to his relics, building a church over his tomb.

Feast: Nov. 1 and 13 (Martyrology of St. Jerome), Nov. 4 (Roman Martyrology).

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:

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