ing six, of " filii nobilium aut jure regni peritorum,"
subsequently called "gentlemen commoners." By
the Statutes of 1855, the Fellowships and Scholarships
were no longer, as before, confined to particular
dioceses and counties, the Scholars no longer had a
right of succession to the Fellowships, the clerical
restrictions were considerably modified, Exhibitioners
were substituted for the Choristers and Clerks, and
the six Gentlemen Commoners made way for ordinary
Commoners, unrestricted in number. Still further
alterations were made by the Statutes of 1882, the
clerical restrictions being almost entirely abolished,
great elasticity being allowed with regard to the
number of Fellows and Scholars, and provision being
made for ultimately including no less than five Uni-
versity Professors in the College, two of which, those
of Latin and Jurisprudence, had already been founded.

Corpus is remarkable for the number and eminence
of its distinguished alumni. Amongst these may be
enumerated Cardinal Pole, nominated Fellow by the
Founder himself; John Jewel, Bishop of Salisbury,
Richard Hooker, and John Reynolds, President in

CROZIER PRESENTED BY THE FOUNDER, circa 1517. —

From Lascelles.

1598, all three Devonshire Scholars, of whom Fuller
says, "No one county in England bare three such
men (contemporary at large) in what College soever
they were bred, no College in England bred such
three men, in what county soever they were born ; "
Thomas Jackson, President in 1630, and Dean of
Peterborough, perhaps the most eminent theologian
of his time ; the " ever-memorable " John Hales; the
antiquaries, Miles Windsor, Brian Twyne and William
Fulman ; Edward Pocock, the famous Oriental scholar ;
General Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia ; the great
lawyers, Lord Stowell and Lord Tenterden ; Arch-
bishop Laurence and Bishops Burgess, Copleston and
Phillpotts ; William Buckland, Dean of Westminster,
the father of English geologists ; John Keble and
Thomas Arnold. The name of the unhappy Duke of
Monmouth, reputed natural son of Charles II., occurs
in the Buttery Books from 1666 to 1683, but he does
not appear ever to have "batteled."

The charming account of Corpus, its studies, and
its youthful society, contributed by Mr. Justice
Coleridge in a letter to Dr. Stanley, for his " Life of
Arnold, " gives an attractive picture of student life at



Corpus in the early years of the present century :
"Arnold and I, as you know, were undergraduates
of Corpus Christi, a college very small in its numbers,
and humble in its buildings, but to which we and our
fellow students formed an attachment never weakened
in the after course of our lives. . . . We were then a
small society, the members rather under the usual age
and with more than the ordinary proportion of ability
and scholarship ; our mode of tuition was in harmony
with these circumstances ; not by private lectures, but
in classes of such a size as excited emulation, and
made us careful in the exact and neat rendering of the
original, yet not so numerous as to prevent individual
attention on the tutor's part, and familiar knowledge
of each pupil's turn and talents. In addition to the
books read in lecture, the tutor at the beginning of the
term settled with each student upon some book to be
read by himself in private, and prepared for the
public examination at the end of term in Hall ; and
with this book something on paper, either an analysis
of it, or remarks upon it, was expected to be produced,
which insured that the book should really have been
read. It has often struck me since that this whole plan,
which is now I believe in common use in the Uni-
versity, was well devised for the tuition of young men
of our age. We were not entirely set free from the
leading-strings of the school ; accuracy was cared for;
we were accustomed to vivA voce rendering, and vivA
voce question and answer in our lecture-room, before
an audience of fellow-students, whom we sufficiently
respected ; at the same time, the additional reading,
trusted to ourselves alone, prepared us for accurate
private study, and for our final exhibitionin the schools.

One result of all these circumstances was, that we
lived on the most familiar terms with each other : we
might be, indeed we were, somewhat boyish in man-
ner, and in the liberties we took with each other ;
but our interest in literature, ancient and modern,
and in all the stirring matters of that stirring time,
was not boyish ; we debated the classic and romantic
question ; we discussed poetry and history, logic and
philosophy ; or we fought over the Peninsular battles
and the Continental campaigns with the energy or
disputants personally concerned in them. Our habits
were inexpensive and temperate : one break-up party
was held in the junior common room at the end of
each term, in which we indulged our genius more
freely, and our merriment, to say the truth, was some-
what exuberant and noisy ; but the authorities wisely
forbore too strict an inquiry into this. "

The more remarkable features in the buildings
of the College are the fine Perpendicular roof of
the Hall, the very interesting old Library, and the
curious dial, designed by Charles Turnbull, in 1581,
which occupies the middle of the front quadrangle.
The College possesses many valuable manuscripts and
early printed books, and a collection of mediaeval
plate, perhaps unrivalled in England. Many stories
have been invented for the purpose of accounting for
so large a quantity of plate escaping the melting-pot
during the time of Charles the First's requisitions in
Oxford, but the simplest and most probable explana-
tion is that it was redeemed by a money-payment.

T. Fowler, D.D., President.

writer, see The Colleges of Oxford, by A. Clark,
