Farlati, Daniele


Jesuit church historian; b. San Daniele del Friuli, Italy, Feb. 22, 1690; d. Padua, April 25, 1773. Farlati was admitted into the Society of Jesus at Bologna in 1707. After teaching humanities at the Jesuit college in Padua, he was sent to Rome to complete his theological studies and was ordained there in 1722. He returned to Padua and collaborated with Filippo Riceputi, SJ, on the history of the Church in Illyria. After 20 years of research and with 300 volumes of collected manuscript material, they began their writing. At Riceputi's death in 1742, Farlati was assisted by Giacomo Coleti, SJ. The first volume of the Illyricum sacrum was printed at Venice in 1751; while the fifth volume was in press, Farlati died. Coleti completed the work with the eighth volume. In 1910 F. Bulĭc published the Accessiones et collectiones all' Illyricum sacrum del P. G. Coleti.

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.
