Christ Church

Christ Church, sometimes called 'The House', is a religious College, and is also the largest College in Oxford. It was founded in 1525, and was originally called 'Cardinal College', after its founder Cardinal Thomas Wolsey. It was re-named Christ Church in 1546, when it was taken over by Henry VIII. The Tower at the centre of the College was designed by one ifs students - architect Christopher Wren - in 1682, and the Towers bell chimes 101 times every night at 9pm Oxford time. This is because the curfew for the Colleges original 101 students was 9pm Oxford time.

Over the last 200 years, Christ Church has produced 13 Prime Ministers. Other famous pupils include -

  • Philosopher John Locke.
  • Charles Dodgson - a.k.a. Lewis Carroll.
  • The poet W.H. Auden.
  • Albert Einstein.
  • William Penn - founder of Pennsylvania.
  • John Ruskin - leading Victorian art critic, poet and artist.

When visiting Christ Church, be sure to take a look at the dining hall, which inspired the set of Hogwarts, and was used for the Great Hall scenes in the movies. Also, on your immediate right as you enter the hall, is a portrait of Charles Dodgson, who wrote the famous Alice in Wonderland novels under the pseudonymous Lewis Carroll, not to mention the stained-glass 'Alice' window. Christ Church also boasts a collection of Renaissance art, including the bibilical Judith holding the severed head of Holofernes.
