Robert Markus Obituary

I was catching up with the obituaries in The Independent earlier today and noticed this one on Robert Markus:

Robert Markus: Medieval historian noted for his writings on the early Church
Robert Markus was a distinguished medieval and ecclesiastical historian known principally for his writings on St Augustine and the history of the early Church. While he wrote as a committed Christian, he always insisted that ecclesiastical history must be written with the same scientific objectivity as secular history, and that ecclesiastical developments could only be understood in relation to wider changes in society.
