Henrique Leitão - Fernando-Pessoa-Prize

I would like to inform you that my professor here in Portugal, Henrique Leitão, which I have first met in Sint-Niklaas and who is a very good mentor to me, has won some days ago the famous Fernando-Pessoa-Prize, the most prestigious prize for culture in Portugal (*)(**).
Together with Henrique I have organized an international workshop in the Portuguese National Library about the relationship between Germany and Portugal during the time of the Renaissance (not related to map history) (***). I am now looking to find money to publish the proceedings of this conference in a German publishing house.
With best wishes from Portugal,
Thomas Horst
