St Cross alumnus and Member of Common Room Peter Nockles is to be honoured with the 2020 Gailliot Award. This annual lifetime achievement award, organised by the National Institute for Newman Studies, recognises extraordinary research into the work of English theologian John Henry Newman.

He is an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Manchester and had visiting fellowships at the University of Notre Dame, University of Lund, and Oriel College, Oxford. He has published about 90 articles, reviews and editions focusing primarily on early and modern religious history, especially history of Anglicanism, English Catholicism, Protestant Nonconformity and Methodism. He is also the author of 'The Oxford Movement in Context: Anglican High Churchmanship in Britain, 1760-1857' (CUP, 1994) and has co-edited at least one Oxford Handbook.
