On the Research@Baylor website: Great Texts professor awarded Humboldt fellowship

Weaver

Dr. William Weaver

Dr. William Weaver, professor in Baylor’s Honors College, was recently named a recipient of a research fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.  The foundation awards fellowships to experienced researchers worldwide for 6- to 18-month research stays in Germany hosted by sponsoring and collaborating German academic institutions.

During his 18 months in Europe, Weaver will devote himself to researching and producing a critical edition of the rhetorical writings of Philip Melanchthon, a 16th Century professor and theologian who labored alongside Martin Luther to bring about the Protestant Reformation. It is Melanchthon who is credited with writing the Augsburg Confession, regarded by scholars as the Reformation’s seminal statement of faith.
