Saturday July 6
Alice’s Day celebrates Alice in Wonderland and Lewis Carroll’s literary contributions to Oxford and the world. Christ Church, like much of the city, opens its doors for special exhibits and general celebrations on this day.
We also explored its dining hall, of which Harry Potter’s is based. We also visited the campus’s church with the most beautiful stained glass windows of any Oxford college. Did you know that the origin of ‘story’ to refer to a tale is its relationship to the stories (as in ‘height’ or ‘floor’) of a church indicating the progression of biblical tales as they move through the height of a stained glass window? Oxfordian knowledge!
The final image is the staircase of a library with artifacts from early Alice in Wonderland art.
