The Bodleian library will hold an exhibition to celebrate the University’s treasures this summer.

 

It will include previously unseen objects, documents and artifacts including a 14th century bishop’s  mitre made of silk and pearls belonging to William of  Wykeham, the founder of New College;  an illuminated Psalter belonging to Elizabeth, wife of Henry VII; and Samuel Johnson’s gruel mug.

The exhibition will also honour benefactors like William Gray and Lord Nuffield.

 

‘Beyond the Work of One’ will begin on 24 May and runs to 1 November, in Catte Street.
