A College Like No Other

30 Jul 2020

Cover of the book about St Edmund Hall, A College Like No Other

Available to buy from the College is ‘St Edmund Hall: A College Like No Other’ – the first book to celebrate the Hall’s past and present.

This book is a rich overview of Hall life from the intriguing history of a medieval Hall and its transformation into a distinguished college within the University of Oxford. It records the stories of place, people, communities and events. The book is edited by former Principal Professor Keith Gull and is a shared project where the writings of many Hall personalities come together to illustrate the diverse aspects of college life, both academic and social, through all periods of the Hall’s existence.

The book is split in to the following chapters:

  • Origins and Evolution
  • Twentieth-Century Transitions
  • Buildings, Gardens & Art
  • Hall Life
  • Academic Life
  • Aularian Recollections

This is the first such celebration of life at the Hall and a treasure for Aularians and friends. We are rightly proud of the Hall’s claim to a special, distinctive and distinguished place in Oxford.
