Baylor University Professor Receives Grant to Translate 14th-Century French Treatise

Sarah-Jane Murray, associate professor in the Honors College and resident scholar at the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, received a three-year, $210,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities. Professor Murray will use the grant to fund her translation of Ovid moralise from Old French into English.

Compiled in the early 14th century by an unknown Franciscan monk, the Ovid moralise includes 60,000 lines of philosophical and theological commentary. To date, it has not been translated into any modern language.

Dr. Murray has been on the Baylor faculty since 2003. She is a graduate of Auburn University and holds a Ph.D. from Princeton University.
