Van Bruhesen, Peter (d. 1571)

Van Bruhesen, Peter (d. 1571)

A Dutch doctor and astrologer who died at Bruges. He published in that town in 1550 a Grand and Perpetual Almanack in which he scrupulously indicated by the tenets of judicial astrology the correct days for bathing, shaving, haircutting, and so forth. The work caused offense to a certain magistrate of Bruges, a barber by profession, with the result that there appeared against Bruhesen's volume another Grand and Perpetual Almanack, with the flippant subtitle a scourge for empirics and charlatans. This squib was published by a rival doctor François Rapaert, but Peter Haschaerts, a surgeon and protagonist of astrological science, warmly defended Bruhesen in his Astrological Buckler.

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.
