2022 Charles Schmitt Prize Winner

We are delighted to announce that the winner of the Charles Schmitt prize for 2022 is Felix Schlichter of the University of Cambridge, for his essay ‘Flavius Josephus and Early Modern Biblical Chronology’. The winning essay will be published in Intellectual History Review.

The quality of top submissions was particularly high this year. So the panel of judges also wish to commend the proxime accessit, Kajetan Kubala of Queen Mary University of London, for his essay ‘Hobbes, Ius Gentium, and Corporation’.

The prize is awarded on an annual basis in honour of the contribution of Charles B. Schmitt (1933-1986) to intellectual history. The recipient receives £250, plus £50 worth of Routledge books, and a year’s free membership of the ISIH with a subscription to the Society’s quarterly journal Intellectual History Review.
