Exhibition - The Hylle Jewel

Wenceslaus IV, King of Bohemia and of the Romans: The Beautiful Style around 1400


The Hylle Jewel in the form of a crowned Lombardic initial M was gifted to College in 1455 by the Hylle family of Winchester. This silver gilt ornament - showing the annunciation - set with a diamond, rubies, emeralds and pearls, is thought to date back to 1350 and its craftsmanship is remarkable. 


The Jewel is currently on display at the Imperial stables of Prague Castle in an exhibition documenting the life of Wenceslaus IV and his court, through the gothic style art of the time. It also commemorates the 600th anniversary of his death (1361-1419).

Multi-million pound plan for a new quad

The new buildings will include 108 student rooms on its Savile Road site, with a new entrance created on Mansfield Road.

This is a genuinely exciting plan, creating a stunning piece of architecture, and will for the first time enable us to house all undergraduates who wish to live in College accommodation.
