Dear Drs. Anguseva, Dimitrova, Jovceva, Petrova-Taneva, and Radoslavova,
The Bulgarian Studies Association (BSA) is pleased to inform you that your book, Vis et sapient: Studia in honorem Anisavae Miltenova. Novi izvori, interpretacii i podxodi v medievistikata. Sofia: BAN 2016, was selected the winner of John D. Bell 2017 Memorial Book Prize (https://bgstudies.org/publications/book-prize-awards). Congratulations to all of you, the Institute of Literature, and the Publishing Center “Boyan Penev”!
In their announcement, the 2017 Book Prize committee states: “This 800-page volume in honor of Professor Anisava Miltenova’s prominent career in medieval Bulgarian literature and textology is a cornucopia of major papers by an international line-up of eminent specialists in Old Church Slavonic and medieval Bulgarian linguistics, manuscript studies, and ecclesiastical texts. The consistently outstanding quality of the papers places the volume on a level significantly above that of the typical Festschrift. The new discoveries and penetrating analyses make a major and lasting contribution to the field of Bulgarian studies. This volume will be a resource for Bulgarists, Slavists, medievalists, Byzantinists, linguists, and textologists for generations to come.”
A formal letter will be sent to your publisher and an announcement of the award will be posted on the BSA website and in the ASEEES Newsletter. The award will be announced at the BSA annual meeting (during the ASEEES convention) on November 12th in Chicago. Please, let me know if you are planning to attend this meeting and/or the convention and, if not, where you would like me to mail you a personal copy of the award certificate.
The Bulgarian Studies Association thanks you for your academic contribution to the field of Bulgarian medieval studies and wishes you success in your professional endeavors.
Vessela S. Warner
