5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 2 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Excellent reference book, containing the graces of all Oxford and Cambridge colleges. The graces are organized in chronological order, and an english translation for each grace is provided alongside the original latin text. The introduction and the short texts on other customs associated with dining in College Halls are an added treat. Endnotes and references indicate the high standard to which the book is written.
For those interested, it's more than just reference. It's a very good read. Wholeheartedly recommended to any Oxbridge student or Latin enthusiast.

A beautiful, scholarly and impeccably presented little volume that will have a wide appeal, not just to Oxbridge graduates but all who are interested in formal and dignified occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Anglican graces 25 Nov 2012
By Dominica - Published on

If you are an Anglican, Episcopalian, or indeed any Christian who appreciates beautiful liturgical language in the graces said at table, then this book is for you. It is a compilation, in Latin as well as English, of the blessings and thanksgivings used both before and after meals at Oxford and Cambridge Universities. The prayers are varied in length, and one is sure to find the perfect prayer for any mealtime occasion. Highly recommended.
