Overview

Overview

Christopher Brooke's account describes the working and development of the college, with much to illuminate the greater world outside its walls.
Christopher Brooke's account of the history of Gonville and Caius, founded in 1348, describes the workings and development of the institution, the home of men such as William Lyndwood, Jeremy Taylor, Charles Sherrington and seven other Nobel laureates - and of Titus Oates. For the more recent centuries, his rapidly moving narrative provides sketches and anecdotes of its central characters set in the wider context of the history of education, religion, learning and research. The Epilogue to this new edition describes the major events in the history of the College in the late twentieth century. Reissue; first published in 1985.

The late CHRISTOPHER BROOKE was Fellow of Gonville and Caius and Dixie Professor of Ecclesiastical history, University of Cambridge.
