City[edit]

You know, not once in this entire article does it state what city Christ Church is in. I know it's should be obvious, but still. Just some info.

OXFORD! Hence "Christ Church, Oxford" at the top of the page

Christopher Wren?[edit]

Surely not?

'Fraid so.

References for the architect are at Tom Tower; the key point to note is that the tower isn't in his usual style because it

ought to be Gothick to agree with the Founders worke

Reproductions of Christ Church's dining hall[edit]

The article mentions that the University of Chicago and Cornell University both have reproductions of Christ Church's dining hall. Unmentioned is that King William II of the Netherlands, who was an alumnus of Christ Church College, build a copy as well, at Kneuterdijk Palace in The Hague. It still exists today. I leave it to the other contributors to decide if this should be added in the article. --OSeveno (talk) 10:55, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
