Oriel College (Oxford)

Oriel College is one of the colleges that together make up the world famous Oxford University.

It is situated in Oriel Square.

The college was founded the early 14th century, in honour of Edward II, and named after the oriel window on its facade.

There was a complete rebuilding in the 17th century, and James Wyatt added a fine library facade in 1789.

It was one of the major places where the Anglo-Catholic Oxford Movement took hold, led by John Henry Newman and John Keeble.
