John Eldevik.

Professor of History John Eldevik has been awarded a €12,000 research grant by the Gerda Henkel Foundation, a private German organization based in Düsseldorf focused on supporting research in the humanities.

The grant will support up to three months of research and travel in German and Austrian archives, libraries, and museums next spring while Eldevik researches a book project on the cult of Thiemo of Salzburg, an eleventh-century archbishop believed to have been martyred by Muslim Turks during the Crusades.

Eldevik's project traces the history of both institutional and popular devotion to Thiemo in medieval and early modern Austria, particularly during the long period of conflict between the Habsburg and Ottoman empires in the 16th and 17th centuries.
