Illyricus, Thomas

ILLYRICUS, THOMAS

Theologian; b. Vrana (near Zadar in modern Yugoslavia), c. 1485; d. Menton, near Monaco, 1528. He entered the Franciscan Observants at Osimo, Italy, and preached throughout Italy, France, and Germany. Clement VII named him inquisitor general in Savoy. Besides his Sermones (2 v. Toulouse 1521), he wrote works against Protestantism, including Libellus de potestate summi pontificis (Turin 1523) and In lutheranas haereses clypeus catholicae ecclesiae (Turin 1524). In his teaching on the papacy, Illyricus held that ecumenical councils are superior to the Roman pontiff.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com 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, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com 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:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com 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.
