Bring up the bodies … for an exhibition at Christ Church Upper Library, Oxford

“Past Perfect at the Cardinal’s College”

This exhibition, curated by Judith Curthoys, allows an insight into the often surprising contents of Christ Church archives. Apart from various versions and drafts of the Statutes, examination papers, documents related to the academic curriculum or the more light-hearted side of college life, Past Perfect at the Cardinal’s College also introduces the viewer to a series of artefacts. Among these, on display for the first time, are a 13th century pewter coffin chalice with its paten discovered during Victorian excavations in the cathedral …

The exhibition will be open from 12 June 2013. Visiting hours Monday – Friday: 9.30 am – 1.00 pm; 2.00 pm – 4.30 pm (provided there is a member of staff available in the Upper Library).
