Question about 하소서체

I know that this style is now used only in historical films, but I'm curious.
The declarative statement is 하나이다, but what about interrogative, imperative and propositive sentences?
Is the the same for all types like in 해요체 or different like in 합쇼체?
I couldn't find it in any grammar book.
Thanks in advance for your help.
