French prophet. Name variations: Marie of Gascony; Marie of Avignon. Died 1399.

Peasant woman, arrived at Avignon on a pilgrimage (1387), in the hope of being cured of an illness; miraculously healed at the tomb of the cardinal Pierre of Luxembourg, settled at the cemetery of St. Michael, where she lived as a recluse; visions compelled her to advise her king, Charles VI, and particularly his queen, Isabeau of Bavaria, whom she reproached for her misconduct; was in Paris (June 2, 1398), where the French prelates were holding a council, when she tried in vain to speak before them in favor of the French pope of Avignon; warned the monarchy in apocalyptic tones that if the instructions coming from her voices were not followed, France and Paris would be destroyed by the Antichrist (1399).

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.
