Hannibaldus de Hannibaldis


Dominican theologian and cardinal; b. Rome; d. Orvieto, 1272. He was a nephew of Cardinal Richard (123974), and entered the Dominican Order at Santa Sabina, Rome. He later studied theology under St. thomas aquinas at Saint-Jacques in Paris. There he lectured on the Sentences (125860) and succeeded Thomas as master in the chair for foreign Dominicans (126062). His commentary on the Sentences, formerly attributed to Aquinas, is one of the earliest expressions of thomism, although it includes excerpts from Peter of Tarentaise (Pope innocent v) and St. bonaventure. Returning to Italy, he was created cardinal priest in December 1262 by urban iv and given the titular church of the Twelve Apostles. In 1265 he was legate of clement iv to support the claims of Charles I of Anjou. After the death of Urban IV, Aquinas dedicated the last three books of the Catena aurea (126568) to his former disciple, who lived to take part in the election of gregory x.

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:

  • 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.
