GATEWAY AND FACADE OF CHRIST'S COLLEGE, WHERE MILTON WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE

GATEWAY AND FACADE OF CHRIST'S COLLEGE, WHERE MILTON WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE

Like St. John's, Christ's College was founded by the Countess of Richmond, better known to Cambridge as Lady Margaret. Her new college, dating from 1505, incorporated an older foundation called God's House, which owed its inception to a devout priest named Bingham about the year 1440. Some stained glass from God's House is preserved in Christ's Chapel. Notice the arms of the foundress over the gateway. In the Fellows' Garden is preserved a mulberry tree which is said to have been planted by John Milton.
