Gauthier of Bruges

Gauthier of Bruges

According to medieval legend, Gauthier, a Franciscan monk made a bishop by Pope Nicholas III and deposed by Clement V, appealed to God against his deposition and asked to be buried with his act of appeal in his hand. Some time after his death, Pope Clement V visited Poitiers and, finding himself one day in a Franciscan monastery, asked to see Gauthier's remains. He caused the tomb to be opened and was horrified to see Gauthier of Bruges presenting his act of appeal with a withered hand.

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.
