      History

      Founded in 1352 by the members of two urban guilds in the wake of the Black Death, the college possesses one of the finest libraries in the world, the Parker Library, which includes the oldest book in England and the first picture of an elephant ever drawn in this country.

      William Wilkins, who designed New Court in Corpus Christi also went on to design the National Gallery in London. Corpus was his favourite work however, and he is now buried in the college chapel, per his request.
