Congratulations to Alice Sharp Hutton (CMS 2015) for her Honorable Mention!

The Canadian Society of Medievalists has singled out Alice’s thesis with another PhD thesis for honourable mention for the Leonard Boyle Prize at the last CSM meeting. Here is the citation to appear in the minutes of the society:

The first [thesis to obtain an honorable mention] is Alice Hutton Sharp’s “In Principio: The Origins of the Glossa Ordinaria on Genesis 1-3”, written at the Centre for Medieval Studies (UofT), under the supervision of Alexander Andrée.  The project untangles the knotty textual development of the Glossa Ordinaria from its early 12th century origins in the school of Laon from the evidence of 16 early manuscripts, refining our understanding of the history of 3– and 4-fold reading schemes, and bringing the methods of codicology, philology and history into a single, fully-formed, academic voice.  She is now installed in a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Humanities at McGill University, where is pursuing work on medieval cosmology, philosophy and theology.
