New College Reads To You
Dominic Selwood Reads To You
Dominic Selwood—historian, author, and journalist—carried out his DPhil research at New College, Oxford. He discusses for #NewCollegeReadsToYou a document from 1940—a list of people in Britain that the German Third Reich wanted to make disappear—one of fifty documents featuring in his forthcoming book, to be published in September of this year, Anatomy of a Nation: British Identity in 50 Documents (Constable, 2021).
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.
The Return of the Choristers - Readings and Music for Lent
The Chapel service on Sunday 14th March was the first to feature our wonderful choristers since December and we were delighted to welcome them back.
The service, Readings and Music for Lent, featured readings from seventeenth-century poet and cleric John Donne. These were read by Professor Peter McCullough, Fellow of Lincoln College and expert on Donne, and introduced by Erica Longfellow, Dean of Divinity. The choir sang motets by Morales, Tallis, Sheppard and Gibbons.
New College Notes
The Papists of New College: I
In her first months as queen, the last surviving child of the Tudor dynasty passed the Acts of Supremacy and Uniformity, the legislation now known as the Elizabethan religious settlement (1559). But who were the Catholics associated with New College during the Reformation period?—the Elizabethan exiles, musicians, university men, deprived clergy, and lawmen?
