Ecclesiastical historian and scholar; b. Paddington, July 7, 1860; d. Oxford, Oct. 10, 1930. He was educated

in Winchester and at Oxford where he spent most of his adult life teaching and in positions of honor. In 1885 he was appointed lecturer in theology of St. John's College and in 1889 he became professor of ecclesiastical history. He was editor of the Journal of Theological Studies from 1899 to 1902. Since he was keenly interested in textual criticism he concentrated on the material of early Western canon law and New Testament studies. He is most noted for his Ecclesiae occidentalis monumenta iuris antiquissima (2 v. Oxford 18991913) and Studies in Early Church History (Oxford 1912).

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:

  • 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.
