The Society for the Study of Medieval Languages and Literature, and Medium Aevum, are very sad to announce the death of Professor Nigel F. Palmer. Nigel has been an energetic and enthusiastic editor of the journal since 1990. A highly distinguished scholar of medieval German and Latin literature (Emeritus Professor of German Medieval and Linguistic Studies, University of Oxford) and a Fellow of the British Academy, he was a much loved and admired teacher and supervisor, and a devoted fellow of St Edmund Hall. His drive and commitment will be greatly missed. An obituary, by Annette Volfing for the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, may be found here
