Nineteenth-century Oxford, Part 2
Michael G. Brock, Mark C. Curthoys
Clarendon Press, 2000 - Education - 993 pages
Volume VII of The History of the University of Oxford completes the survey of nineteenth-century Oxford begun in Volume VI. After 1871 both teachers and students at Oxford were freed from tests of religious belief. The volume describes the changed mental climate in which some dons sought a new basis for morality, while many undergraduates found a compelling ideal in the ethic of public service both at home and in the empire. The contributors address a wide variety of issues, including women's education, architecture, sport, and scholarship.
