Every Oxford college should have a history like this. Well documented, handy in weight and size, neat and handsome in shape and appearance, it carries the reader smoothly and readably down the centuries while somehow finding room for ample illustrations, maps, tables, budgets and poems. (Brian Harrison, Times Literary Supplement)
This history of Trinity College from 1555 until the present day illustrates the changing shape and purpose of one of Oxford's colleges: a training house for Catholic priests in the sixteenth century; a pillar of the Anglican establishment in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; a centre of educational reform in the nineteenth; a thriving part of Oxford University today. Clare Hopkins makes extensive use of archival sources and the records of ordinary students to focus on the changing nature of a college community. This book exemplifies the evolution of Fellows into tutors, undergraduate commonors into students, and household servants into staff, and shows how the needs of these mutually dependent groups have shaped the environment around them.See all Product description

The Best History of Trinity, Oxford To Date

Trinity College was founded in the 16th century and although there are several sources for the history of the college, none is as detailed as this. No other history of the college traces its development into the end of the 20th century as this one does including important changes which have occurred within the last several decades (such as the admission of women to college in 1979). The author's writing style is very readable and she had done extensive research and presented it in a fashion with grasps and holds the readers attention. Definitely, the best single book on Trinity College available today. I attended Trinity in the late 1970's so I can vouch for the accuracy of the modern portions. As I said, definitely the best single book on the college available today and most probably for quite some time.
