Structures of learning
This unit provides a brief introduction to Special Subject 14 as a whole and to 'Structures of Learning' in particular.
This unit explores aspects of the learned values of the early seventeenth century by tracing the evolution of the Bodleian Library-Schools Quadrangle complex before 1640 and the buildings clustered around it after 1660.
Five historical maps, spaced at regular intervals -- 1578, 1605, 1643, 1675 and 1751 -- provide a visual record of the process in which the cluster of buildings at the heart of the modern University was constructed.
Loggan's superb set of 40 engravings captures for the first time the built environment of Oxford in great detail.
