Griffiths’ The Garden of Delights wins Labarge Prize

The Garden of Delights: Reform and Renaissance for Women in the Twelfth Century by Fiona Griffiths has been awarded the Margaret Wade Labarge Prize by the Canadian Society of Medievalists. The Labarge Prize committee wrote:

Fiona Griffiths’ book The Garden of Delights: Reform and Renaissance for Women in the Twelfth Century blends forensic codicology, art-historical research, theological investigation, and pure old-fashioned archival detective work in the first book-length study of the Hortus deliciarum, a twelfth-century illustrated manuscript anthology of Latin theological and scholarly works intended for the ongoing education of the Alsatian community of Augustinian canonnesses in which it was produced.
