S. Leonard Rosenthal, D.D.S., created this fund in memory of his wife, Constance L. Rosenthal, ED'24, G'32, and GR'36.
The fund supports the acquisition of materials in the field of medieval studies, her lifelong interest. She would be pleased to know that her Penn dissertation, The VITAE PATRUM in Old and Middle English Literature (shown on the right), is still in active circulation at the Penn Library, along with all the new materials provided by the interest from this generous endowment.
Materials purchased through this fund include:
- Governance of kings and princes : John Trevisa's Middle English translation of the De regimine principum of Aegidius Romanus
- Drama and pedagogy in Medieval and early modern England
- Heathens, pagans, misbelievers : a lexico-semantic field study and its historio-pragmatic reflections in texts from the English Middle Ages
- Chaucer's choices : through the looking-glass of medieval imagery
- When Adam delved and Eve span : a history of the Peasants' Revolt of 1381
