Remembering Gerald Bonner who died on 22 May 2013

The Directors of the Oxford Conference, meeting on 2 July 2013, remembered with gratitude and affection Gerald Bonner, Reader Emeritus at Durham University (UK) and Distinguished Visiting Professor of Early Christian Studies at the Catholic University of America. He contributed to patristic studies both by his own publications, which included the classic St Augustine of Hippo: life and controversies (1963, rev.ed. 1986), and through his prompt and kindly encouragement of fellow-scholars. He attended the Conference for many years, and it was a sadness that his health did not allow him to be there in 2011. There will be many appreciations of his work: meanwhile, his colleagues at Durham have posted a brief account of his life by his family
