Pocket Guide: Oxford Divinity School Hotels

Oxfordshire is awash with fascinating things to see and do, from the glories of the city of Oxford itself to a world-class wildlife park and numerous traditional and wildly historic towns and villages spread right across the county. The good news for visitors is that Oxfordshire hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses are plentiful and come in all shapes and sizes to suit any budget and personal preference. Whilst in Oxford, be sure to visit the Divinity School, attached to the world-famous Bodleian Library, to see some of its unique and remarkable features.

The Divinity School from Hotels in Oxfordshire

The Divinity School can be found inside the main building that houses the magnificent Bodleian Library. The latter was actually founded in 1320, but the Divinity School wasn't established until 1488. It is famous especially for its vaulted ceiling incorporating no fewer than 455 elaborately carved bosses. The ceiling is quite unique and the bosses represent a range of familiar scenes from the Bible along with real and mythical beasts. In fact when you go in there it's like looking up at a visual representation of a medieval bestiary, and the whole interior is deliciously Gothic and atmospheric.

Living History in the Divinity School from Oxfordshire Hotels

The Divinity School is in fact the oldest building to survive that was originally meant for use by Oxford University. It was used for oral exams, lectures and theological discussions until the 19th Century, and although Oxford still runs divinity courses at degree level these are based in the nearby Faculty of Theology.

When you visit the Divinity School from your Oxfordshire hotel or B&B you can easily get into the Bodleian Library, as Duke Humphrey's Library is just on top of it, in the same building. The Sheldon Theatre is also right opposite, the appropriately grand venue where students go to graduate and matriculate, so there's plenty to see in the immediate area. You can make a day of it, in fact, as Convocation House stands at the far end of the library and all the attractions of Oxford are just a short stroll away from your Oxfordshire hotel.
