Of the Colleges, Halls: And Public Buildings, Attached to the University of Oxford, Including the Lives of the Founders (Classic Reprint)
The history of the English Universities is one of the most interesting objects on which a lover of literature can fix his attention. It embraces all that is curious to the antiquary, or important to the scholar: and even to minds not deeply affected by curiosity or learning, it must be a delightful object to contemplate those extensive and magnificent establishments, not as emerging from national wealth, or royal favour, but from the liberality of a series of individuals in the darker ages of our history, who were insensibly led to become the benefactors of sound learning and religion, while their immediate object, although proceeding from the most honourable and benevolent motives, was to perpetuate superstition and credulity.
The history of these Universities, however, has not been studied with the care bestowed on objects of far inferior interest.
