Congratulations to Thomas F. X. Noble, recipient of the 2011 Otto Gründler prize for Images, Iconoclasm, and the Carolingians. The prize was presented at the International Congress on Medieval Studies.
For three years in a row, the Medieval Institute has chosen a Penn Press author to receive the Gründler prize. In 2010, the prize went to John Van Engen for Sisters and Brothers of the Common Life: The Devotio Moderna and the World of the Later Middle Ages. Caroline Walker Bynum won in 2009 for Wonderful Blood: Theology and Practice in Late Medieval Northern Germany and Beyond.
