Treasures of Ushaw College

treasures_ushawUshaw College was founded over 200 years ago just outside the historic city of Durham to educate students for the Catholic priesthood. It can trace its origins back to the exile of university professors at the time of the English Reformation in the sixteenth century, who went on to found a college at Douai, northern France. In addition to its splendid architecture, the college’s library and archival holdings contain a wealth of rare and unique items, including St Cuthbert’s ring, Thomas Cranmer’s personal copy of two Lutheran works and a first edition of the Cabinet du Roi. Treasures of Ushaw College presents more than 45 highlights from these collections, written by leading experts, as well as accounts of the college’s history and the architectural development of the site.
