Professor Martin Maiden awarded the title of Commander in the 'Ordinul Na?ional “Serviciu Credincios”'

By a decree dated 18 December 2013, gazetted on 23 December 2013, the President of Romania awarded Professor Martin Maiden, the Professor of the Romance Languages, the title of Commander in ‘Ordinul Na?ional “Serviciu Credincios”’ (‘The National “Faithful Service” Order’), an honorific order whose origins can be traced back to 1878. The citation praises Professor Maiden for his work in promoting the Romanian language in the United Kingdom, and especially at the University of Oxford, where he has been instrumental in founding the Lectorate in Romanian, and for his role in fostering academic collaboration between Romania and the UK and in promoting Romania’s image abroad. The honour will be bestowed by the Romanian Ambassador at a ceremony on 21 March 2014.

Congratulations..

to Dr Richard Ashdowne, formerly a Ling-Phil student, on the completion of the Oxford University-based Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British sources.
