No rule:  AGLC 4 does not have a rule for the Bible. In the introductory notes on page xi, the editors suggest that source types which are not included in AGLC should have citations constructed using the closest fitting rule. The resulting citations should be  clear, accurate and consistent with the AGLC style. Law students undertaking Logos or Core Curriculum courses should follow the information in the Chicago Referencing Guide: Religious & Classical Works for citing Biblical books. A short summary is given below.

General rule: Book, Chapter:Verse (Version)
  • Use the full title of the Biblical book using roman letters (not italics) when used in the narrative text.
  • Use numerals only in both narrative text and footnotes when citing chapters and verses. These are separated by a colon with no spaces.
  • The Bible version may be indicated in the first footnote parenthetically, if relevant (usually used when comparing several versions of the Bible). This is not ordinarily needed for Core Curriculum or Logos coursework.


… when Leviticus 19:12 is considered in this light…

... the meaning in 2 Kings 12:19 (New Revised Standard Version) is interpreted as ....


Footnotes: Follow the Chicago Footnote method (see chapters 10.44, 14.239), and use an abbreviated form for the Biblical book (see chapters 10.45 (OT) and 10.47 (NT). Use roman letters (not italics). Again, the Bible version may be included parenthetically if relevant.
