Rose plucked as winner of Whitfield Prize
12.07.12 | Joshua Farrington
Jacqueline Rose has been named as the winner of the Royal Historical Society's Whitfield Prize for her book on Restoration England.
Her book Godly Kingship in Restoration England: The Politics of the Royal Supremacy 1660 -1688 (Cambridge University Press) was praised by judges for its "deeply impressive research". The judges called it "a book of substantial and enduring significance".
The Royal Historical Society, which was founded in 1868, awards the Whitfield prize to an original piece of scholarly research on British or Irish history published within the calendar year.
It must be the author's first solely written book.
The prize was created in 1976, and the winner receives £1,000.
