arms. The city bore for several years the aspect at
once of a camp and of an exiled Court. In these
troubles St. John's had its full share. Scholars joined
the King's troops, Fellows were driven from their
country livings, the College gave up its treasures to
the Royal cause. (See English Historical Review,
October, 1892.)

Juxon, " that good man," as Charles I. called him,
had worthy successors. After Baylie, who had married
Laud's niece, and was restored in 1660, died, Peter
Mews, a former fellow of the College, who had led
an adventurous life during the Rebellion as a Royalist
agent in Scotland and Flanders, was nominated by
the King and elected by the College. He ruled well

and wisely, and lived as Bishop of Bath and Wells,
and later of Winchester, to the beginning of the
eighteenth century.

The most interesting period of the College history
was during the Reigns of the Stuarts. The same
spirit of devotion to the Church and loyalty to the
throne which had animated Laud and Juxon still
breathed in their successors. Tobias Rustat, esquire,
yeoman of the Robes to Charles II., and under House-
keeper of Hampton Court, left a large sum to endow
loyal lectures — two on "the day of the horrid and
most execrable murder of that most glorious Prince
and Martyr ; " one to be read by the Dean of Divinity,
and the other by "some one of the most ingenious
Scholars or Fellows whom the President shall ap-
point," setting forth the "barbarous cruelty of that
unparalleled parricide ; " one by the Dean of Law on
October 23rd, " which was the day wherein Re-
bellion did appear solemnly armed against Majesty ; "
and a fourth on the 29th of May, "setting forth the
glory and happiness of that day," which saw the birth
of Charles II. and his "triumphant return." There
is in the College library a curious portrait of Charles I.,
over which, in a minute hand, several Psalms are
written. Tradition has it that when the " merry
monarch " visited Oxford he asked for this eccentric
piece of work, and that when on leaving, in recogni-
tion of his loyal welcome, he offered to give the
Fellows anything that they should ask, they declared
that no gift could be so precious as the restoration to
them of the portrait of his father. The story, true or
not, could only be told of a College which was famous
as the home of devoted loyalty to the Stuarts. It
was Dr. Peter Mews who lent his carriage horses to
draw the Royal canon to Sedgmoor.



Almost within living memory the Fellows of St.
John's in their Common Room, " a large handsome
room, the scene of a great deal of learning and a great
many puns," toasted the king " over the water." Up
till the middle of the present century, indeed, it was
a College of survivals. The old loyal lectures were
read, the old "gaudies" held, the old rules main-
tained.

During the period of the Tractarian movement the
College played no unimportant part. Its President,
Dr. Philip Wynter, was Vice-Chancellor during the
most critical years. One of its tutors, the Rev. H.
B. Wilson (Bampton Lecturer, 1851) was prominent
in controversy, and another Fellow, the Rev. H. A.
Woodgate, was "a centre of influence in Oxford and
in the country " (Dean Church, Oxford Movement,
p. 293). Even within recent years the College has
been accused (by an observer who loved bitterness
and epigram better than enquiry) of being ' corroded
with ecclesiasticism. ' It is a charge at which Dean
Mansel, the most famous of its modern alumni, would
have smiled.

Much has undergone change at the hands of Time
and of Parliamentary Commissions ; but there still
lingers one feature of the old life of the University
which elsewhere has passed away. St. John's alone
of all the Colleges has (1893) no married Fellow ; thus
here, as it can scarcely be elsewhere, the College life
is most closely centered within the College walls.
