Education

The University of Oxford has no known foundation date. Teaching in some form existed as early as 1096. The historian Gerald of Wales lectured to scholars in 1188 and the first known foreign scholar, Emo of Friesland arrived in 1190. The university was granted a royal charter in 1248 in the reign of King Henry III. From 15th Century onwards the Renaissance influenced scholarly life. Of note, William Grocyn contributed to the revival of Greek language studies. With the English Reformation and breaking of communion with the Roman catholic church some scholars fled to continental Europe.

The method of teaching was turned from the medieval scholastic method, which involved reading a book or piece of scholarly work and comparing and discussing with disagreeing texts of multiple sources and would work to make a whole of the two differing arguments, to Renaissance education, or Humanism emphasizing the value of human beings individually and collectively, preferring critical thinking over dogma. During the English Civil War the University was a centre of the Royalist party, while the town itself favoured the Parliamentarian cause.
