new character. A College was no longer only the
small family of Fellows, following the rule of life
prescribed for them by their founders' statutes ; but it
became an integral part of the University. Hitherto
the Colleges had been places of learning within the
University, but not even in the aggregate, co-extensive
with it : the bulk of the students were independent,
or as they would now be called, non -collegiate.
Henceforth, the Colleges and the University be-
came for many important purposes, identical : and in
popular language to go to the University was to go
to College. Oriel now became, what it has con-
tinued ever since, an educational establishment, re-
ceiving students of all conditions, subject to strict
discipline, and directed in their University studies by
tutors, appointed by the Head of the College out of
the Fellows of the ancient society. The occupation
of the Fellows was the instruction of their pupils,
rather than that continuation of their own studies,
which had been the aim of their original foundation.

An immediate consequence of this change at Oriel
was the demolition of the existing fabric : and the
erection on its site of new buildings, suitable to the
altered conditions. This work was begun in 161 8,
when the south and west sides of the present front
quadrangle were erected : the north and east sides,
with the Hall and Chapel, were completed in 1642.
No part of the old Oriole was preserved. The cost
was wholly defrayed by the contributions of the mem-
bers of the College, past and present : Provosts
Blencowe, Lewis and Tolson, whose arms were till
recently to be seen on stone shields round the quad-
rangle : the Earl of Kingston and Sir Robert Hailey,
commemorated in like manner in the windows of the
College Hall, were some of the principal benefactors.
The northern part of the site was for sometime
reserved as a garden or grove : but early in the
eighteenth century two additional blocks of buildings
were erected by Dr. Robinson, Bishop of London,
and formerly Fellow, and by Provost Carter. The
present Library, at the extreme north end of the
garden, was built in 1786, to receive the collection of
books from Stoneleigh Abbey, the bequest of Edward,
Lord Leigh. Further extensions of building were
made on the East side at the beginning of the present
century. Even with these additions the accomodation
for students within the walls remains very limited :
the present number of sets of rooms falls considerably
short of sixty. And the confined site, in the heart of
the town, and closely shut in by streets, forbids any
great expansion. By recent legislation it has been
provided that St Mary's Hall, which adjoins the



College on the north, shall before long be united with
Oriel: this accession will admit at a future time of the
extension of the College to the High Street, bringing
it face to face with the Church with which its original
foundation is so closely connected.

The most eminent names among the former mem-
bers of Oriel in previous centuries are those of Sir
Walter Raleigh : Lord Holt, Chief Justice of England:
William Talbot, Bishop successively of Oxford, Salis-
bury and Durham : Charles Talbot, his son, Lord
High Chancellor of Great Britain : Bishop Robinson,
already referred to, Lord Privy Seal, and negotiator
of the Peace of Utrecht : Joseph Butler, Bishop of
Durham : William Gerrard Hamilton : and Gilbert
White, fifty years Fellow. But it is in a more recent
period that the fame of the College has reached its
highest level.

Although, as has been stated, Oriel, like the rest,
opened its doors to students outside the corporate
body, it remained in one respect singular among its
sister-foundations. There existed no body of junior
members, elsewhere called Scholars, with rights or
expectations of succession to Fellowships. The choice
of Fellows remained, with a few exceptions in favour
of certain counties and dioceses, open to the whole
University. And it was this peculiar liberty that
enabled the College at the close of the last century to
take the decisive step which lifted it into eminence.
From 1795, when Edward Copleston of Corpus was
invited, on account of his high academical reputation,
to fill the vacant Fellowship at Oriel, the principle
was firmly maintained of selecting upon merit alone,
without considerations of interest or favour. The
result was in a short time to make the Oriel Fellow-
ship the highest prize of an Oxford career. Among
those, whose names under these conditions have been
placed on the Oriel roll, the following are some of the
most eminent : Archbishop Whately : Dr. Arnold :
Dr. Pusey : Cardinal Newman : Dr. Hampden,
Bishop of Hereford : John Keble : Richard William
Church, Dean of St. Paul's : James Fraser, Bishop of
Manchester: Matthew Arnold : Arthur Hugh Clough
and many others.
