The defense of the thesis took place at the aula of Tilburg University in Tilburg, where many colleagues, family and friends were present. In the morning a symposium was held on Jews and Christians in Mediëval Christianity. Lectures were given by Anna Sapir Abulafia (Oxford), Herwi Rikhof (Tilburg) and Marcel Poorthuis (Tilburg), chaired by Judith Frishman (Leiden).
We congratulate all involved!
