Andreas receives Royal Historical Society honour

Trinity College Chaplain, the Revd Dr Andreas Loewe, has been welcomed as a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society in Great Britain, in recognition for his extensive research in church history.

Andreas was proposed as a Fellow by one of his lecturers at Cambridge, Dr David Smith, which he said was a great privilege. 

‘To be recognised for my historical research is an incredible honour and being nominated by one of my lecturers makes it even more rewarding,’ Andreas said. 

‘It’s not only a recognition of my achievements but it inspires me to continue my studies and encourage others to engage in historical research—I would be thrilled to reciprocate the honour to someone from the Trinity community in the future.’ 

Andreas is currently researching JS Bach and how the Scriptures are brought to life through the composer’s music. 

The Royal Historical Society was founded in 1868 and draws together more than 3,000 members from around the world engaged in researching and presenting public history. Find out more about the Royal Historical Society.
