Access and Outreach, Fellows, Students, Tradition and Innovation

In the Chapel at Trinity there lies the tomb of the sister of Robert Smith, Master of Trinity, 1742–1798. Close to High Table is a precise copy of ‘Master John’s’ portrait of Katherine Parr, the sixth wife of Henry VIII, who founded Trinity in 1546. Some say it is Katherine who persuaded the King to endow the College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity, not long after dissolution of the monasteries.
