The Wadham Gospel book is arguably the most important, and certainly the earliest, of the College's manuscripts, dating back to the late eleventh century. In this new video, Historian and Professorial Fellow of Wadham College, Richard Sharpe, describes this rare 900 year old example of an Anglo-Norman manuscript with full page illuminations.

The manuscript was given to the College in 1625 by William Boswell, scholar (1613) and Fellow (1622).
