Georgia (d. 6th c.)
Saint. Name variations: Georgette. Died at the beginning of the 6th century.
According to Gregory of Tours, her near contemporary from Auvergne, Georgia was a young girl living at Clermont in the beginning of the 6th century who withdrew from public life in order to meditate, fast, and pray. When she died a flight of doves, said to be angels, accompanied her body as it was borne in funeral procession from the house where she perished to the church. During the service, the birds hid in the roof, then reappeared when the funeral procession left for the cemetery. After the interment, they flew toward the heavens. Saint Georgia's feast day is February 15.

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:

- 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.
