18 November 2021

RRR and its Douglas Murray Prize adjudication panel is pleased, in accord with the prize-guidelines, to announce the winner of the prize (£1000) for RRR 22 (2020): Richard J. Serina.

RICHARD J. SERINA, Concordia Seminary, St Louis, Missouri, was awarded the prize for his article in RRR 22, no. 2 (2020): 94-111 entitled: Irreparable Breach or Late-Medieval Reform? Luther’s Address to the Christian Nobility and the Conciliar Reform Tradition 

The award panel for this volume consisted of Bruce Gordon (Yale), Charlotte Methuen (Glasgow) and Monique Venuat (Clermont-Ferrand). They commented as follows:

In his article, Serina explores the complex appropriation of late-medieval reforming efforts in the Reformation. His nuanced discussion of Martin Luther and the decrees of the fifteenth-century councils recasts our understanding of the reformer’s medieval inheritance.  

Congratulations to the prize winner!
