Part 6. 

The Eight Statues on the West Front of the Library.

Fellow of Queen's College.

A famous religious "runner with the hare and hunter with the hounds"

I am very much indebted to Dr Graeme Salmon, Curator of Pictures at Queen's College, Oxford for making me welcome at Queen's and for making this work possible.

This blog entry is part of a much larger work investigating and recording the 17th and 18th Century portrait sculpture at Oxford. This project was suggested to me by Dana Josephson of the Bodleian Library, Oxford, who is currently in the process of cataloguing the portraits at the Bodleian and to whom I extend my heart felt thanks.

Thomas Lamplugh  was educated at Queen's College Oxford, was Principal of St Alban Hall and Archdeacon of London from 1664 to 1676. He was Dean of Rochester from 1673 to 1676, Bishop of Exeter from 1676 to 1688 and Archbishop of York in 1688.
