Past & Present was saddened to hear over the weekend of the death at the age of eighty of Cliff Davies, Emeritus Fellow of Wadham College Oxford.
A pre-eminent early modernist who authored Peace, Print and Protestantism 1450-1558 (1976), Cliff spent most of his adult life teaching at Wadham and as Keeper of the College Archives became the go-to expert on the College’s history. He served as the University of Oxford Faculty of History’s Director of Graduate Studies during the 1990s, a period when the number of graduate students at the institution increased substantially. He will be very much missed.
In his memory the Past & Present are pleased to announce that his 1968 article for the journal, “The Pilgrimage of Grace Reconsidered”, shall be free to access from now until the end of 2016.
Cliff (C.S.L.) Davies, early modernist, 1936-2016
