This volume describes the structure, constitution and curricula of the University of Cambridge and the part it played in the political life of Britain. For most of this period the University functioned largely as a seminary for the Church of England, and much attention is paid to the religious views of its members. The careers and intellectual achievements of some leading scholars are described in detail, while undergraduate life--social, sporting and academic--is examined through individual case studies. Special attention is paid to the movement to reform and modernize the University in the period 1830-70.
