The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church is pleased to announce the Rev. Dr. Benjamin King as recipient of the 2022 Nelson R. Burr Prize. King is professor of Christian history, associate dean for academic affairs, and director of advanced degrees at The University of the South, School of Theology. He earned a B.A. and M.A. from Cambridge University, a Th.M. from Harvard University, and a Ph.D. from Durham University.

Dr. King is honored for his article “Church, Cotton, and Confederates: What Bishop Charles Todd Quintard’s Fundraising Trips to Great Britain Reveal About Some Nineteenth-Century Anglo-Catholics,” published in the Summer 2021 issue of Anglican and Episcopal History (Volume 90, No. 2).

The Burr prize honors the renowned scholar Nelson R. Burr, whose two-volume A Critical Bibliography of Religion in America (1961) and other works constitute landmarks in the field of religious historiography. A selection committee of the Historical Society determines an author of the most outstanding article in the Society's journal. The award also honors that which best exemplifies excellence and innovative scholarship in the field of Anglican and Episcopal history.
