Robert Pring-Mill was one of a generation of young men whose education was interrupted by the Second World War and who went to university as mature students after demobilisation. In Hispanic Studies, as in other subject areas, it was academics of that generation who laid the foundations of the modern discipline, and Pring-Mill, an all-rounder who firmly believed that his various research activities were mutually enriching, had the distinction of making a significant contribution to several of its branches. In the course of his career, but primarily in the early stages, he produced a body of studies that earned him recognition as one of the world's foremost authorities on the work of medieval poet, mystic, philosopher, and theologian Ramon Lhull. Pring-Mill's most substantial and most important work in the area of Golden Age literature was his writings on Spain's greatest dramatist, Pedro Calderón de la Barca.
