Deaths

I know of the following deaths in 2012:

Curzio Chiesa (Geneva)

James Reilly (Toronto)

Vilém Herold (Charles University, Prague)

(Thanks to Steve Lahey for bringing this last to my attention. He wrote to me of Herold that “he was the great figure in the study of medieval philosophy there [at Charles University] for decades; indeed, when 1968 happened, he was forced to leave the university by the Soviets and drove a streetcar, all the while continuing to edit Wyclif. He was a wonderful man as well as a great scholar.”)

I might also mention these deaths from 2011:

David Reisman (Illinois/Chicago)

Alfonso Maierù (Rome)

Gareth Matthews (UMass/Amherst)
