Congratulations to Dr Norah Berend who has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the Unversity of Stockholm

The entry on the University website reads as follows:

Nora Berend is Reader in European History at the University of Cambridge, and Fellow of St Catharine’s College. She is best known for her work on medieval religious minorities, and on processes of Christianization. She explained the complex position of religious minorities in society in her prize-winning At the Gate of Christendom: Jews, Muslims and ‘pagans’ in medieval Hungary (c.1000 – c. 1300) (2001). As a visiting professor at Stockholm University she has fostered collaborative research on medieval Scandinavia and stronger ties for medievalist graduate students and scholars between Stockholm and Cambridge.
