Guido Maramaldi, Bl.


Dominican preacher and inquisitor; b. Naples, Italy, mid-14th century; d. there, c. 1391. Born of noble Neopolitan parents, Guido entered the dominicans at San Domenico in Naples, studied philosophy and theology there, and enjoyed a reputation as a pulpit orator. In Ragusa the citizens erected a Dominican convent as a tribute to his preaching, and later he was appointed inquisitor (see inquisition) for the Kingdom of Naples. He was buried at the chapel of the Rosary in the church of San Domenico, and the popularity of his cult soon caused the chapel to become known as the chapel of Blessed Guido. The cult never received official approbation, but Domenico Marchese (d. 1692) prevailed upon the bol landists to insert a brief notice on Guido in the Acta Sanctorum in 1612.

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:
