Facing Radcliffe Square is the eastern side of Hawksmoor’s quadrangle, the ‘grand dormitory’ of fellows’ rooms, with common rooms on the ground floor. The three-storey facade is broken by the extraordinary twin towers, as if the west front of a medieval cathedral had been dropped into an Oxford college. As Sir Howard Colvin put it, ‘Gothic used scenically and romantically, but within the conventions of a classical tradition… a unique episode in English architecture.’

All Souls College (in full: The Warden and College of the Souls of all Faithful People deceased in the University of Oxford) is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in England. Unique to All Souls, all of its members automatically become Fellows, i.e., full members of the College’s governing body. It has no undergraduate members. Every year, the top finalists of the University in the humanities are invited to sit the examination in Classics, English, Economics, History, Law, Philosophy and Politics for fellowship of the College. About two are elected to fellowship each year. These Fellows are known as Prize Fellows, their term of office is seven years and roughly a dozen are at the college at any one time. Other categories of fellowship include Senior Research Fellows, Post-Doctoral Research Fellows, Fifty-Pound Fellows (open only to former Fellows no longer holding posts in Oxford) and Distinguished Fellows. There are also many Professorial Fellows who hold their fellowships by reason of their University post. Text Courtesy of Wikipedia
