Dominican bishop; b. Trogir, Dalmatia, c. 1260; d. Lucera, Apulia, Aug. 3, 1323. He entered the Order of Preachers at an early age and in 1286 was studying at the University of Paris. On returning to Dalmatia he founded several convents and undertook missions in Italy, Bosnia, and Hungary. benedict xi consecrated him bishop of Zagreb, Croatia (1303). He restored discipline in his diocese and fostered learning, particularly in Biblical studies. Miladin, governor of Dalmatia, against whose tyranny he had protested, defied and persecuted him. In 1317 john xxii transferred him to the See of Lucera in Apulia, where he died in the Dominican convent he had founded. He was venerated for his charity to the poor and for his gift of healing, and was accorded public honor soon after his death; in 1702 Clement XI confirmed his cult.

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:
