Sister Urszula was Professor at the Catholic University (KUL), medievalist and specialist in the history of the Jagiellonian dynasty. She was the academic teacher of a number of CEU graduates and well loved guest professor in our department. She joined the editorial board of our Central European Medieval Texts at its foundation and served consciously for more than ten years. We counted always on her good judgment as to the selection of texts and their publication.
