Hall Fellow Zachary Guiliano receives EHS Book Prize 2023
20 Jan 2023
Congratulations to the Revd Dr Zachary Guiliano, Career Development and Research Fellow in Early Medieval History, who received the Ecclesiastical History Society’s annual prize for his book The Homiliary of Paul the Deacon: Religious and Cultural Reform in Carolingian Europe (Brepols, 2021) on 14 January 2023.
The prize is awarded once a year to an author’s first monograph in the field of ecclesiastical history. The selection committee praised the book, saying it would have ‘an enormous impact’ on the field: ‘Guiliano’s study combines enormous technical expertise in palaeography and codicology…but what we feel really sets this book apart is how Guiliano uses this attention to detail to shed light on the political and intellectual life of the early medieval Church.’
