Trinity – A Portrait
Trinity – A Portrait (2011). Edited by Edward Stourton and John Lonsdale. Hardcover. 261 pages.
Re-founded by Henry VIII in 1546, Trinity College Cambridge has inspired enduring affection in generations of alumni and Fellows.
Plenty has been written about the genesis of the College, its many distinguished alumni and even its finances. However, in the seven decades since WWII, generations of Trinity students have witnessed profound changes at an unprecedented pace. Today, Trinity is a vital contributor to the modern, research-based University of Cambridge, at the same time remaining a scholarly community, a family in which the social and academic are indivisible.
Trinity – a Portrait is not a history so much as a thematic exploration of both the individual’s experience of the College and the College’s development in the university, national and global arenas.
Includes a CD with tracks from recordings by the Trinity College Choir. Book dimensions: 25 cm × 29 cm × 2.5 cm. Weight: 2 kg.
