Theology Footnotes/Bibliographies: Home

Examples of all different sorts of citations formatted using Chicago Humanities/Turabian.

Getting Started

This guide provides models of the most common kinds of scholarly citations (for footnotes, endnotes, and bibliographies) using Turabian/Chicago Humanities, specifically for common resources in Theology (see below for links to each of these books).  Browse the tabs to find models for each kind of resources, and please don't hesitate to call on either Jane Elder or Chris Clarke if you remain confused.

Biblical scholars use the SBL (Society of Biblical Literature) Handbook of Style, so do not panic if your professor prefers to see citations formatted using this method.  A link to SBL is provided below.

Be Clear on Expectations

Students should always ask their professors:

  1. Which style of scholarly citation do they prefer?
  2. Do they want to see footnotes or end notes?
  3. Do they want students to include a bibliography?
  4. Do they prefer to see shortened citations or Ibid.?
