Barbara Aland Receives Order of Merit

The former director of the Institut für neutestamentliche Textforschung in Münster, Professor Barbara Aland has been awarded a German order of merit, "Bundesverdienstkreuz am Bande" (equivalent to the Knight's Cross) by Bundespräsident Christian Wulff, specifically for her work on the New Testament text.

She received the order from the hands of Regierungspräsident Dr. Gerd Bollerman in a special ceremony last week.

  1. No reference to "Doktor." She never got a PhD?

  2. Oh Yes, it goes without saying that Professor Aland got her PhD. And further several honorary doctors.

  3. It needs to be translated the rest of the way into English.

  4. A well deserved honor. Congratulations to Professor Aland.
