In this work on specific problems at Marlowe Erné made no mention of the Marlowe / alias Shakespeare theory of Calvin Hoffman. There can hardly be any doubt that Erné rejects the Hoffman theory strongly.
Did he really deserve the prize (as many other award winners), although he has not made a contribution to the actual objective of Calvin Hoffman and his Memorial Trust? Calvin Hoffman at the time had been mercilessly taken for a ride by the Stratfordian Cartel.
This "moral dilemma" [A cardinal can never be forced, to deny his God] is not likely to change unless a [non existent] impartial, unbiased neutral "Non-Stratfordian" Adjudicator will be appointed.
Prof. Jonathan Bate, high ranked academic Stratfordian expert, also a strict opponent of the Marlowe theory, was awarded 1995 with the Calvin Hoffman prize. A few years later he was the adjucator of Erné s prize.
