James Cinti de Cerqueto, Bl.


augustinian hermit and ascetic; baptized Giacomo Cinti; b. Cerqueto near Perugia, Italy, at the close of the 13th century; d. Perugia, Apr. 17, 1367. He was noted for his exemplary life of virtue; many miracles were attributed to him, e.g., frogs ceased croaking when he preached outdoors. His relics have been venerated for centuries at Perugia, and his remains were enshrined by Horatius, bishop of Perugia, in 1754. His cult was first publicly approved in 1895 by leo xiii. The fact that the Augustinians are sometimes permitted to wear white habits is attributed to his prayers.

Feast: Apr. 17.

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.
