The History of Glasney College

Also available is Dr. Whetters ‘History of Glasney College, published by Tabb House price 8.50, the script on the back cover says: This book is a detailed study of an important centre of ecclesiastical power in Cornwall during the late Middle Ages: Glasney College, at Penryn, founded by the Bishop of Exeter in 1265. There are chapters on its establishment and growth, its buildings, officials and daily life, its chantries, and its relationship with the local community and with the Cornish language. The light and dark of the medieval scene, with its idealism and violence, its grandeur and poverty, is vividly recreated here and will appeal to both the specialist and the general reader interested in history. DR JAMES WHETTER B.A., Ph.D is a noted Cornish historian and editor of The Cornish Banner Journal. He is the author of Cornwall in the Seventeenth Century and The History of Falmouth and lives at Gorran near St Austell in Cornwall.
