Yale University History Professor Stuart B. Schwartz won the first annual Cundill International Prize in History for $75,000 awarded by McGill University, according to a University press release on Thursday. He received the award for his book “All Can Be Saved: Religious Tolerance and Salvation in the Iberian Atlantic World,” which was published by the Yale University Press in June this year. It is the largest non-fiction historical literature prize in the world, the release stated. McGill selects a U.S. author who has “published a book that has had a profound literary, social and academic impact on a given subject.”
