Williams receives honour for theology
The Archbishop of Canterbury has been handed a special honour from the university of Wales in recognition of his services to theology.
Dr Rowan Williams was presented with an honorary doctorate at a ceremony in Bangor on Saturday.
In February, he became the first Welshman to lead the Church of England when he was enthoned as the 104th Archbishop.
The former archbishop of Wales first studied theology while at Christ's College, Cambridge, in the early 1970s.
He then carried out research on Christianity in Russia, and spent two years as a lecturer at Mirfield Theological College near Leeds.
A six-year stint as Professor of Theology at Oxford followed, before he was enthroned as Bishop of Monmouth in 1992 and archbishop of Wales in 2000.
Dr David Roberts, registrar at the University of Wales, Bangor, said the ceremony celebrated "the exceptional contributions made by the individuals being honoured".
