Callistus Angelicudes


14th-century Palamite and mystical writer, probably identical with Angelicudes Melenikeotes, recognized as the founder of a monastery through a patriarchal seal of 1371. He is known in Byzantine literature also as Callistus Meliteniotes or Callistus Telicudes. A. Ehrhard attributed to the authorship of Meliteniotes 30 Logoi hesychastices paracleseos; and to Telicudes, a tract on the hesychastices tribes. The latter, however, seems to be merely an abbreviated section of the first-named treatise. Both works are apparently parts of a handbook of Hesychastic doctrine.

Learn more about citation styles

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.
