Cathedral, Christ Church, Oxford, from the cloisters
The cathedral of Saint Frideswide was built in the 12th Century as the church of the nunnery. When Cardinal Wolsey founded Cardinal College in 1525 he had the west end of the church demolished to allow Tom Quad to be large, intending to build a grander college chapel. But the church remained when Henry VIII refounded the college as Christ Church, and he made it a cathedral in 1546. Parts of the cloister were rebuilt in 1499, and parts in 1870-76 by Sir George Gilbert Scott.
