Edward Ullendorff Medal

The Faculty of Oriental Studies would like to congratulate Dr Sebastian Brock FBA on being awarded the Edward Ullendorff Medal for Semitic Languages and Ethiopian Studies for his extensive contribution to the study of Syriac language and literature.

The Edward Ullendorff Medal is awarded annually for scholarly distinction and achievements in the field of Semitic Languages and Ethiopian Studies. This award commemorates Professor Edward Ullendorff FBA (1920-2011). His widow, Mrs Dina Ullendorff, has generously supported the establishment of a Medal in memory of her husband in view of his long association with the Academy, which he valued greatly.
