Burkitt Medal (Biblical Studies)
The Burkitt Medal is awarded annually in recognition of special service to Biblical Studies, for Hebrew Bible studies (in odd years) and in New Testament studies (in even years). The award was established in 1923 following the decision of Professor Francis Crawford Burkitt (1864–1935), elected a Fellow of the Academy in 1905, to strike a number of bronze medals for presentation by the Academy to scholars of Biblical Studies. After his death in 1935 the awards became known as Burkitt Medals. The Medal was first awarded in 1925.
In 2016 eligible nominations must be for special service to New Testament studies. Nominations may only be made by Fellows of the British Academy.
Nominating body: Section H2
2015 Professor David J. A. Clines, University of Sheffield
