Robert Frost

Prof. Robert I. Frost (University of Aberdeen) will be joining us in Jenkins Nanovic Hall (Room 1050) to discuss "Religion and the History of Compromise."  His magisterial work on the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth is both groundbreaking and award-winning, and will serve as the backdrop to his visiting lecture. 

Prof. Frost is currently working on a three-volume history with Oxford University Press of the Polish-Lithuania Commonwealth, the first volume of which won the 2017 prize from the Polish Foreign Ministry for the best foreign-language book on Polish history published between 2015 and 2017, and the Benedict the Pole prize, awarded by the Travellers Club. A Polish translation of Volume One appeared in October 2018, published by Rebis. In 2020 he was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Order for Merits to Lithuania, and he was elected to the Fellowships of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences.  Prof. Frost is also an elected member of the Fellows of the British Academy.

This event is sponsored by the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies and co-hosted with the Nanovic Institute for European Studies and the Department of History, both at the University of Notre Dame.
