Professor Andy Cain has been granted the Provost's Faculty Achievement Award!

Beautifully framed, and with embossed gold decoration on the certificate! This is a very prestigious award granted by our Provost to a select few faculty each year to recognize outstanding contributions to research. Professor Cain won it for his extraordinary 2013 book with Oxford, "Jerome's Epitaph on Paula: A Commentary on the Epitaphium Sanctae Paulae". Critics have described this book, which includes a critical edition of the Latin text, a facing English translation, and an extensive commentary (drawing on ancient sources in Latin, Greek, Aramaic, and Hebrew as well as modern sources in a similarly broad array of languages) as a "monumental achievement," "breathtaking" and "fascinating," one of "vast erudition" that secures Professor Cain's position as "the preeminent scholar on Jerome."
