Congratulations to Dr Helen Moore whose book Amadis in English: A Study in the Reading of Romance has been chosen as the recipient of the 2021 Bainton Prize for Literature by the Sixteenth Century Society & Conference.

The Roland H. Bainton Book Prizes are named in honor of one of the most irenic church historians of the twentieth century. Four Roland H. Bainton Prizes are awarded yearly for the best books written in English dealing with four categories within the time frame of 1450-1660: Art and Music History, History and Theology, Literature, and Reference Works. The criteria for selection are quality and originality of research, methodological skill and/or innovation, development of fresh and stimulating interpretations, and literary quality.

Dr Moore commented, “I am deeply honoured by the award of the 2021 Bainton Prize for Literature. Throughout my career I have aspired to the academic values celebrated by the Bainton Prizes and I am truly delighted that my book has been thought deserving of this honour."
