Jesus College information
This tranquil 15th-century college was once a nunnery of St Radegund before the Bishop of Ely, John Alcock, expelled the nuns for 'improvidence, extravagance and incontinence'. Highlights include a Norman arched gallery, a 13th- century chancel and art nouveau features by Pugin, William Morris (ceilings), Burne-Jones (stained glass) and Ford Madox Brown. Illustrious alumni include Thomas Cranmer, burnt for his faith in Oxford during the Reformation, and long-running (58 years!) BBC radio journalist Alistair Cooke. And no, in spite of what some tour guides may tell you, Jesus did not attend Jesus College.
