History

All Souls College has a long and distinguished record in the study of history, and many current and former Fellows, as well as Visiting Fellows and Lecturers, either do historical research or have extensive interests in history. The College provides Fellowships for the holders of several University posts in the subject. The Chichele Professors of the History of War, and of Medieval History, are Fellows of the College, and several Fellows hold University appointments in the study of social and economic history: a University Lecturer in Social History and a Professor of Economic History are based here, as well as the Chichele Professor of Economic History. The research of Fellows and Visiting Fellows is supported by the holdings of the Codrington Library, which has a particularly fine collection of books on the history of France, and military history, as well extensive materials for the study of Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages.
