Winston Black, the Marco Institute’s Jimmy and Dee Haslam Postdoctoral Fellow, is a historian of medieval Europe who specializes in the religious and medical history of England and France. His essay, “‘I will add what the Arab once taught’: Constantine the African in Northern European Medical Verse” (in Herbs and Healers from the Ancient Mediterranean through the Medieval West: Essays in Honor of John M. Riddle) was recently awarded the 2012 Jerry Stannard Memorial Prize, given to the best essay in the history of materia medica, medicinal botany, pharmacy, or folklore of drug therapy. Black’s edition and translation, Henry, Archdeacon of Huntington. Anglicanus Ortus: A Verse Herbal of the Twelfth Century, was published earlier this year (Toronto and Oxford, 2012). In addition, his summer 2012 research travels are being funded by prestigious sources: he has been chosen to participate in a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar in London, and he has received a Vatican Film Library Mellon Fellowship to use the archives at St. Louis University.
