Remembering Alison Scott-Prelorentzos

News - Intro image

It is with great sadness that we learned of the recent passing of Alison Scott-Prelorentzos, esteemed member of the Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. During her academic career, she became known as a leading expert on the eighteenth-century German playwright Gotthold Ephraim Lessing: her scholarly articles on his themes of tolerance versus anti-Semitism were widely cited. She was very involved in many scholarly societies, including being a board member of CSECS, and was the one who suggested the name of our journal, Lumen. A tribute in her honor was published in 2000, in that very journal:

We express our most sincere condolences to her family, colleagues and friends.
