Exeter College Chapel

Exeter College Chapel

Chapel architect: Sir George Gilbert Scott, 1854-60.

'The Chapel, which extends the entire length of the north side of the great quadrangle, is worthy of a more particular description. Not only is it undoubtedly the finest ecclesiastical edifice in the University, but it is the chef-d'oeuvre of its accomplished architect. The great roof of noble pitch towers high above the surrounding buildings, and forms a conspicuous object in the distant view of the city; while the tall and graceful fleche which surmounts it adds to the number of the towers and spires of Oxford, and is by no means unworthy of its place in that unrivalled group. The plan of the chapel is rectangular, the east end being extended into a pentagonal apse. Its interior dimensions are as follows: - Length 91 feet, width 30 feet, the height from the ground line to the ridge of the root is 84 feet, to the summit of the vane 130 feet. The area is subdivided into an ante-chapel (the westernmost bay) 20 feet long; the chapel proper 56 feet, and the apsidal sacrarium 15 feet long. It is divided into five bays, including the ante-chapel, which are separated by buttresses of great projection, and well able to support the massive stone vaulting of the roof within. The buttresses are plain beneath, but are richly decorated above the crockets and finials . . . and on each is a niche, intended to be filled with statues gradually as funds shall be provided for the purpose. There is a three-light window, with varied geometrical tracery,, in each bay; the windows of the apse are of two lights, and three of the five are to be filled with stained glass of the richest description, which is now being prepared by the well known artists, Messrs, Clayton and Bell, who are old pupils of Mr Scott. . . . The entrance doorway, with a rich pedimental head and tympanum prepared for carving, is on the south side of the ante-chapel. There are niches in the jambe which are to be filled at once with statuary, &c'. The Civil Engineer and Architects Journal, vol. 22 (1859) 38-39.

The Chapel
The College Chapel was built in the eighteenth century. Dr George Clarke, Henry Keene and James Wyatt were responsible for different stages of its lengthy construction (1720–91), owing to shortage of funds. The interior columns and pilasters, the dome and the delicate foliage plastering are all Wyatt's work. His classical interior was insufficiently emphatic for the tastes of militant Victorian churchmen, and between 1864 and 1866 the chapel was redecorated by William Burges. It is highly unusual and decorative; being predominantly pink, the pews are decorated with carved animals, including kangaroos and whales, and the walls are riotously colourful, and include frescoes of dodos and peacocks. Its stained glass windows were to have been designed by John Everett Millais, but Burges rejected his designs and entrusted the work to Henry Holiday. Oscar Wilde said of the Chapel, 'As a piece of simple decorative and beautiful art it is perfect, and the windows very artistic
