about

This volume describes a century of rapid and fundamental change. Under the Tudors the University witnessed the dramatic intrusion of successive governments into its affairs by visitations, and by the supplanting of the medieval regime of the regent masters with government by heads of houses.In the background to these violent changes the college evolved into the ordinary home of the undergraduate, displacing the medieval private hall, and Oxford acquired its familiar character as an association of endowed collegiate undergraduate societies. The intellectual counterpart of thisinstitutional change was the spread of humanism, particularly in the faculty of arts. This volume challenges the view that these changes were purely unofficial and extra-curricular, and argues that the statutory curriculum, properly understood, was an integral part of this humanistic,neo-Aristotelian, and cosmopolitan Latin culture.

Ker, G. E. Aylmer, John Newman.

Editorial Reviews

'The writing of the new history of the University of Oxford continues with magisterial tread, with the appearance of the Tudor volume...the present volume will be quite indispensable, based as it is on a mastery of past and present research as well as on a hitherto unattainable comprhensivesearch of the archives of both the university and its colleges.'
