bonæ litteræ: occasional writing from David Rundle, Renaissance scholar

Obituaries to George Holmes

Posted in Obituaries by bonaelitterae on 14 April, 2009

Soon after Prof. Holmes’ death, I wrote a few words. At the time, I lamented that there had not been any obituaries of him in the broadsheets. That has now been rectified by columns in both The Times and The Telegraph. There will, in the fullness of time, one assumes, be a memoir to him in the Papers of the British Academy, of which he was a Fellow. Similarly, I can state with some certainty that Renaissance Studies, which unusually for a learned journal demonstrates its humanity by including obituaries of leading scholars in the field, will devote a few pages to a description of his life and work. I have been asked to write that piece.

If you know of any other obits that have or will appear, please do add a comment to this post.
