'Every year when I open the Annual of the Medieval Studies Department of the Central European University I unfold a map of Europe, a true wide map as I have always deeply wished it to be, now come true. I know, leafing its pages, that I can move through the holy fools of Russia to the urban ceremonials of the Baltic cities, to pilgrimages in the Balkans and in Scandinavia, to a whole richness marvellously opened up for me. It’s something to which I have in recent decades been deeply grateful. It is one of those dreams which I never dared to think, when rising in the mid-1960s, would become so marvellously true.'

Peter Brown (Princeton University; CEU honorary doctorate 2005)
